Trafalgar Square has its fourth plinth: now we have our very own red-hot art happening spot: the phone box opposite the Red Lion.

Following the success of the Allsorts Pre-School exhibition 'Life Beneath the Waves', the Parish Council has granted permission for a series of art exhibitions in the decommissioned phone box. The only limit is the collective imagination!

"Audience satisfaction surveys conducted from the window seat of the Red Lion proved that the Allsosrts exhibition was a real hit, with many visitors to the village enjoying the children’s work," says Alison Debney. "It is the intention that the Telephone Box Gallery will be a long term project for the village utilising the iconic Sir Giles Gilbert Scott design. We are keen to hear from future exhibitors."

Exhibition ideas should be sent by June 1st 2013 to Alison at

The exhibition and the gallery was officially opened at Easter Weekend by SODC Councillor Celia Collett and Pre School Supervisor Julie Carr. ‘Life beneath the Waves’ was created by the children of Allsorts Pre School (2 ½ – 5 year olds), under the artistic direction of Natasha Hillier, to aid learning about animals and their habitats.

The concept is for a series of temporary displays by local and national artists, societies, clubs, schools and crafts people that will make people think about Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, its locale and its people. Exhibits would change every couple of months depending on demand.
