But we didn’t do it alone…so we just want to take a minute to say some thank you’s and we hope you’ll join us in applauding/liking these wonderful people:
All the artists, musicians, performers and teachers who took part, braving an
incredibly cold day – you’re awesome, every single one of you. Without you, Art
on the Street is nothing.
Our sponsors at Claires Court Schools. It feels weird to call them sponsors when they’re actually such good friends. It’s just a wonderful pleasure to work with such incredibly positive, kind and hardworking people.
Carly & Mac Kenny and their supporting team who pulled a great, fantastically received live schedule out of the bag – hope Mac has fully defrosted after a day manning the stage!
Jane Wright & her super-helpful and incredibly efficient team at the Nicholsons Centre.
All at the Maidenhead Advertiser - their team are part of the Art on the
Street extended family these days!
The amazing mulled-wine scented girlies at Bovilles Art Shop who truly know how to multitask.
Our MP and Home Secretary Theresa May for joining us in an impromptu visit. She knew many of the artists by name and clearly isn’t a stranger to fine artwork.
The Dalai Lama of Design, Jon Gray at Grayscale Design. He is single-handedly responsible for the sea of pink and gold that makes Art on the Street’s marketing so striking and beautiful.
Laura Spires for her kindness and for giving us the biggest laugh of the day!
Maria Evans for rocking up with the BEST cakes and cookies we have ever consumed.
Pro Arte, Derwent & Winsor & Newton for providing goodies to go in our artists check-in packs.
Oliver at Norden Farm and his team for their fabulous planet-making workshops. The Passing of Planets Parade the following Saturday was incredible!
Our husbands/partners: Andy, Clyde, Jon and Wayne for their help, unfailing patience and support.
All the retailers in our High Street who are so amazingly supportive of Art on the Street. Especially the Thai Shop Maidenhead, Java & Co, The Zip Yard and all the shops who have given vouchers and offers to our artists .
The Helping Team - all those brave and wondrous people who turn up at the crack of dawn to put up the market - Ed, Sarah, Adeleh, Sheila, Martin, Lloyd, Alma, Craig, Terry, the gorgeous girls from Bovilles, The Willis Brothers, Rachel, Alex R, Alex C, Matt, Mike, Ann & Stephen, Sophie & Martin. Big thanks also to the volunteers from the Rotaract who also volunteered to help and to Michael Vicary who is just an absolute superstar.
Hope we haven’t forgotton anyone – give us a kick if we have!
