We give you the dirty details about climbing Ben Nevis and do our bit for London's artistic community.

Ben Nevis: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

After last week’s ode to Londonewcastle’s excursion to Scotland earlier this month, I thought it was only right to go into proper detail about the Ben Nevis climb that a few of us endured. If you are ever planning on participating in a climb such as this one, always be prepared and you can never have on too many waterproof items of clothing (take it from me).

When we first arrived at the base of the mountain, everything seemed just peachy, it wasn’t raining (yet) and we had just been informed that a dog called Buddy would also be accompanying us on our walk. After layering up and getting acquainted with out two guides (and Buddy) off we went.
Everything seemed to be going well, it was hot and sweaty, the layers were coming off and spirits were high, quite a breeze so far. After an hour or two we perched on some rocks and dug into our phenomenal packed lunches that were given to us by the chefs at Corrour Lodge, I truly believe that I will never stop telling people about those scotch eggs.

Before we knew it, the rain set in, the layers came back on and the conversation quietened down as we all concentrated on the goal in mind, to get to the top. With frozen faces and fingers we eventually made it in an impressive three and a half hours! Sadly, we had a few more hours to go to make it down again and when we eventually did, I had never been so glad to be walking on flat ground.

The House of the Last London

Last week we popped down to Gallery 46 in Whitechapel to see Iain Sinclair’s exhibition: The House of the Last London.
This exhibition is a collective of the life works and portfolio of the artist and features collaborations with artists in almost all types of artistic medium. We were lucky enough to catch Iain as he was being filmed at the gallery alongside a featured collaborator Alan Moore.

Our advice when going to check out the exhibition, do set aside a decent amount of time to fully appreciate the plethora of work.

They Made This

Online photographic arts journal and print shop, They Made This, is gearing up for an exciting event starting on 30th September. Founder of They Made This, Aine Donovan, is collaborating with Protein Gallery in Shoreditch to create Totem, an event where a variety of artists, including Camille Walala, Morag Myercough and Damien Poulain, are designing and creating one-off totem poles which will be raffled off to help support and raise money for Amnesty.

Upon starting at Protein Gallery, this event will be occurring at the same time as the annual Protein Block Party and will move on to other artistic locations afterwards, until December.

Londonewcastle is happy to be a sponsor for this event, as a way of supporting London’s artistic community and we encourage you to be a part of this occasion to do your bit for Amnesty.
