Music Evening The Steel Rooms

September Music Evening – Dive Bar

Live Music at The Steel Rooms

Dive Bar will be playing live at The Steel Rooms Friday 29th September

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Tickets are £5

Licensed bar available.

The band will be performing upstairs, on the third floor in our Gallery space.

About the band…

Dive Bar are a trio of experienced musicians who have come together to explore their shared passion for country and blues music. They are right at the start of their musical journey and whilst the destination is unknown the direction is very much towards creating and reproducing songs in unique ways merging influences from country, blues, folk and rock rather than following any particular form of musical tradition.

They deliver songs in a stripped down form using both acoustic and electric instruments to produce a performance with guts and edge and play a mixture of original material and non-mainstream covers.

Photography Talk with Simon Gaddes

A Quiet Life Talk by Simon Gaddes at The Steel Rooms

A Quiet Focus Photography Talk with Simon Gaddes

Date: Saturday 4th November

Time: 1.45pm – A 60 – 90 minute talk

Cost: £5 per person or included in £10 cost of monthly photo hub

More about Simon

Simon goes back to basics and uses a single camera and lens when it comes to capturing his subjects, his own tiny little revolt against the complex, modern photography world. He specialises in close up work with a little landscape and portraiture thrown in, making images of subjects that we may ordinarily pass by, in conditions that are momentary and unique. True to his image making philosophy there is little desktop post production in Simon’s work, time is spent making the image not at a PC screen at his Retford home.
Simon’s informal talk will cover his development and practical approach to subjects with his own images shown throughout.

Look at some of his previous work here in his Quiet Life Photographs.
