Favourite Hang-Up Exhibition and Why?

That is a hard question. We have produced over 50 shows now and they have all been really special.

If pushed I would say that Tim Fishlock's second solo exhibition in May 2019 'Introversion Immersion' stands out as favourite. He created a room within a room made up entirely of light boxes. It looked amazing. The show examined our compulsions with social media which feels very relevant at the moment.

The Connor Brothers first exhibition 'So It Goes' was special, we had a dinosaur installed in the gallery and Nadya from Pussy Riot flew over from Russia for a talk in the gallery about the Refugee Crisis on the opening night.

We did a show with DMC from Run DMC a few years back. He performed in the bunker on the private view which was incredible.

Again, I could go on...

This one is easy. The team, hands down. We are very lucky on that front
