Former bank becomes hub for creatives


A former bank in Kendrick Street is set for a new lease of life.

The old Halifax bank at 12 Kendrick Street has recently been acquired by Alice Begg and Robbie Humphries, the husband and wife team behind Humphries and Begg on Lansdown. Work will soon be under way across four floors to include a music studio on the first floor, retail space on the ground floor and light and airy living space on the upper floor.

Earlier this month Betsy Bradley’s solo Bayou exhibition took place in the building.

Bayou saw guests treated to hoppy pale ale from Deya Brewing Company and pre-biotic sparkling soft drinks from Living Things. This is the third exhibition organised by local curators Sacred Thing (www.sacredthing.art).

Bayou includes five recent paintings by Betsy Bradley that have been made using unorthodox materials including sea water and dust sheets. Bradley has also worked with the architectural quirks of the space to create site-specific interventions using brightly-pigmented sand. 

Bradley has an impressive CV which includes: a solo exhibition at Birmingham’s prestigious Ikon Gallery in 2021; a solo exhibition at Vardaxoglou Gallery in London in 2022; and a group exhibition at The Mead Gallery at Warwick Arts Centre in 2023. 

The exhibition is open Fridays and Saturdays, 10am – 5pm, until February 24th. All works in the show are available for sale.
