A new contemporary art space, in the heart of Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, run by two locally revered artists - Dale Wells and Darren Neave (RCA), who met whilst studying at the University of Lincoln.
The gallery space has been kindly supported by Skippko, an arts organisation based in Holbeck, South Leeds, formed in 1988 by two female artists. For more than 30 years they have been committed to developing creative projects with communities across the North. They develop bespoke programmes of work in cooperation with individual communities often collaborating with partners like Leeds Libraries & Information Services and Leeds Museums & Galleries. Skippko secure investment for their programmes of work through major funders such as Heritage Lottery Fund, Awards for All, The Big Lottery & Esmee Fairbairn and support funders, Wade’s Charity, Trusthouse Charitable Foundation, Charles Brotherton Trust and Greggs Foundation.
turntable gallery launches into the new year with an exhibition of brand-new inkjet prints and paintings by Hackney based artist; Martin Church. The images are made by sketching, whist commuting on the Metropolitan Line tube in West London. Beginning back in 2015, the process has evolved from using smart phones and drawing apps, to sketches made on blank postcards with a broad swathe of mediums.
The show presents a linear journey through a practice, linking drawing, technical processes and framed final pieces.
The Neurodivergent History project is all about the “weirdos” that history generally likes to ignore; the “mad”, the “idiots” and the “different”. In this show and the accompanying booklet, Rosemarie Cawkwell, supported by The Faraway CIC and funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, has brought these people out of the shadows, to show that neurodiversity is a natural part of humanity and neurodivergent people have always been here.
The Grimsby, Cleethorpes and District Civic Society welcome you to a retelling of the story of Edward Bannister, a local philanthropist and lover of the arts. Over 150 years ago, as Mayor of Grimsby, he donated the drinking fountain, first sited in Albert Gardens.
This show re-presents the fountain in its current state and its journey throughout the years and within the town.
We hope to raise awareness of local arts and culture and the legacy of a great man who helped shaped Great Grimsby, and how we can take pride in local projects.
Please come and share your thoughts, memories and questions.
Dale Wells and Darren Neave from turntable gallery need your help and support in making this happen.

We have tracked Grim down!
We can assess how badly damaged he is and give him a public space, so the townsfolk can see the amount of work that needs to be done. He can once again become the emblematic figurehead and a well-loved work of art. This is a great symbol of the town and needs to be re-kindled and nurtured!
