Art Upstairs & Winter News


Some of you may have already noticed that our upstairs rooms have now been opened to the public. Here’s our Artist in Residence with a short introduction to the new exhibition:

‘As a prelude to the series of exhibitions that The Plough intends to hold in the upstairs ‘Upper Galleries’ from January 2015, we have hung the “Snow Queen – Fragments” in the smaller of the two gallery rooms. The “Snow Queen – Fragments”, a travelling exhibition, includes work by artists Rebecca Ilett and Stefanie Reichelt, plus our Artist in Residence, Deanna Tyson. The artworks on show are a collaborative interpretation of the popular fairytale story by Hans Christian Andersen.

In addition, Deanna has an exhibition of ‘Guardian Angels’ hung in the downstairs corridor. The series of Guardian Angels has been created with hand-made papers, painted and stitched. There are also some textile wall hangings on the stairs. All works are for sale and 25% of all sales will be donated to the Brent Centre for Young People, a leading mental health charity for young people.’

The rest of The Plough’s winter calendar is also nowDSC_2658 in full swing: the tree is going up, there’s a smattering of seasonal songs on the playlist, and the Christmas Menu is looking rather fine…

DSC_2667The Menu will run up until 24th December, and there’s still time to book your party in if you’ve not done so already – with booking forms and menus available via our homepage.

It’s also still possible to book onto tomorrow’s “Taste-the-List” wine-tasting. We’ve got over twenty wines (and a selection of cured meats and cheeses) available to try, all for just £10. Attendees qualify for 20% of takeaway wines, whilst our wine expert will be on hand to answer questions. It all kicks off at 7.30pm tomorrow – book now over the bar, or give us a call!

Keep your ears to the ground for an imminent New Years Eve announcement too…
