Noiselab has left the building!

After 11 months, over 70 events, 42,000 visitors, 10 exhibitions and 26 window displays the NOISELAB project has finished.

It's been a hugely successful project and we hope we have opened a few creative doors for you along the way.

Nowhere else in UK has one venue provided young creatives with the opportunity to sell and exhibit their work, and to learn skills and gain career boosting advice from those in the know.

NOISELAB extended its initial 6 months projected opening times, to almost 11 months of creative activity - on the high street!

The ethos of NOISELAB will continue; to provide non-formal learning opportunities to enable emerging artists to get ahead in the Creative Industries.

    We would like to hear your NOISELAB stories
  • Do you have a favourite/memorable event?
  • Has a workshop inspired you to take your creative career further?
  • Did you make any cool connections?
  • Were you offered any opportunities that you would not have had if NOISELAB wasn't there?


Massive thanks to everyone involved, who has made this project a resounding success.
