Retail Pop-ups at Real Ideas 

If you say something 15 times it really sticks in your brain, right? So, we at Real Ideas challenge you to say ‘Think big and shop small’ across 15 friends, acquaintances, loved ones and colleagues, because independents really need you – socially distanced of course!

That’s why at Real Ideas we pledge to support our growing community of Members across our buildings through retail and exhibition opportunities. We want the voice of local makers and artists to be heard and our spaces are excellent platforms to do so.

So through our summer programme, we want to offer a continuing platform for small businesses to showcase the products with a series of retail pop-ups. 

We're aligning our first retail pop-up of the year with a light Installation in the Factory Cooperage Courtyard,  PHASE SHIFTER. This spectacular artwork from internationally renowned light collective Squidsoup, which has been co-produced with the Real Ideas Organisation. Plus some mural painting by some of the Real Ideas Members.
