We have alternate morning and evening monthly meetings. Anyone is welcome to attend. They are generally on the third week of each month. The morning meetings are held at Woods Restaurant on the Pantiles on a Thursday starting at 10am - 12 noon. The evening meetings are usually held at Vittle & Swig on the Camden Road, Tunbridge Wells and start at 7pm - 9pm.
At Woods, participants order and purchase their own tea/coffee as you walk in and join the long table. At Vittle & Swig drinks are purchased at the bar downstairs and the meeting is in the top room. General chat and catch up for 15 minutes or so is followed by the formal part of the meeting, led by different members each time. The meeting covers: introductions of new members, sharing news and ideas, discussing any exhibitions coming up, the gallery at RVP, planned markets and other events. Come and be inspired and meet a lovely creative group of proactive people.
The date for the next meeting is:
Thursday morning 25th January 10am - 12pm at Woods Restaurant on the Pantiles. Purchase a drink when you walk in and come and join in with our creative banter.

For those of you that were luckily enough to be part of The Hospice in the Weald's Art for Arts Sake art fair earlier this year, there are discussions about another event next year. They are looking for collaboration and more help to publicise and help out with the local arts community so for anyone that would like to be a part of it and help out then watch this space and the Creatives FB page for more information in the New Year.
