The Watershed floods city with opportunity

The Watershed - bringing new cool to Newport Pagnell
The Watershed - bringing new cool to Newport Pagnell

BY DAY it will be the perfect place to settle back with a fairtrade cup of something caffeine or herbal and peruse some of the on hand literature – The Watershed will stock a range of independent books, which will be available to use, borrow or buy.

The new hub officially opens its doors tomorrow, and home is Tickford Arcade in Newport Pagnell for this tidy little treasure of a venue.

It will also operate as a music shop for local musicians, and as a gallery for those who are more visually creative – The Belfry Gallery is all about bringing art together, by exhibiting a constantly evolving display of local pieces.

Newport Pagnell is a haven for charity shoppers, so pop in, peruse, take a chance on a vinyl slab, pop to The Watershed and make friends with the gramophone. Then, when the sun goes down, After The Watershed promotions will take over letting the live sounds ring proud.

Tomorrow’s inagural event is being headlined by Tim Ten Yen making his return to the new city.

Accompanied by Sinister the Cat, this one-man (and his feline) show will be quite unlike owt you’ve witnessed before...unless you’ve already seen him at work, of course. Seeing really is believing, so make tracks inside nice and early.

Luke May and The Happy Club are also showing out at the big bash and urban poets Dale and Josh will head for the stage lights to cut loose their material too.

The Watershed opens at 10am tomorrow morning, with the gig rolling from 8pm.

City Nights will bring you more from the exciting venture in the coming weeks, with Discotendo, an open mic stand up comedy bash and a goth ball among future promotions.
