It’s finally happened – the old mill that has been our home for the past almost six years has been put up for sale, so we may soon be looking for a new home. We have had a great time in this old mill, run many successful events and made a great many friends. We appreciate our lovely landlord, former councillor and Preston mayor Albert Richardson, allowing us to rent it for so long but sadly, the time has come that it must now be sold and when a buyer has been found, we will have to move on.
So, what happens now? For the time being, normal activities will continue with resident artists still using their studios and running their respective activities. For the future, until or unless we can find another affordable home, ‘Oxheys’ as a collective will become peripatetic – we’ll pop-up and down whenever opportunities arise or when an unused space needs an intervention, or some art in it.
