We got the contract for Ultraviolet which is pretty straight forward. It says we cannot play loud music, aren't allowed to have access amounts of alcohol and can't break anything. We are getting the venue for two weeks but are only paying for one. We have decided we want the venue from the 28th of November until the 12th of December. This way, in the first week we have it we can display our artea photography posters in the window. This might be able to spark some interested for the locals who walk past it everyday.
It is about 90% certain that we have the venue next door as well. I phoned the company again because I hadn't heard anything back and the lady who I spoke to last time explained that she contacted the owner and he said it would be fine to get the venue if it hadn't been rented out by then. Because the exhibition is only 5 weeks away, she said it is highly unlikely someone is going to rent it out before then. She also told me that we could get the venue for free and have it for a whole week! The owner is currently on holiday but will be back today. The lady I spoke to will phone the owner again to decide when I can pick up the keys and so I can get a quick viewing of the place. After she has done that she will phone me again.
Adam has spoken to Joe Alabaster (Ultraviolet Owner) and asked him whether he has a risk assessment for the place, he doesn't so we will have to make our own. He also asked if Joe has a ramp for wheelchair access and he does! He'll put that in for the opening. The problem is that we have found out that Tyran's wheelchair doesn't fit through the door, at the moment we are hoping that the door to the second venue will be large enough to fit a wheelchair through.
