This weekend I went to an event in Bournemouth called ‘secret walls’ held at the Winchester.

I’ve only been to the Winchester a handful of times and I’ve not been disappointed yet.¬† It’s a hidden gem! A place that is full of heart in every sense of the word. People are there to share, experience, and appreciate all types of art whether that being dance, spoken word, theatre, art or live music.

If you are ever in the area of Bournemouth, be sure to check it out. You’ll find a pure eclectic mix of underground music and people from all walks of life!

Last night was secret walls ‘Round 1′ – in simple terms an art off. An event where two artists battled against each other to turn a blank wall into a work of art in 90 minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
As the rules state ’90 minutes, black and white, no sketches or pencils, GO BIG, OR GO HOME!!’

The event started at half 9 at which point it wasn’t too busy, but as the 90 minutes progressed the venue certainly picked up! It was such a good atmosphere! With music from DJ Roast Beatz, Extra medium, Selby and a Countryman Sound System UK afterparty.

The winner was Hula Herbert. Or ‘Tank girl’ as we were referring to her the whole night. (Wall on the left).
I did think she deserved to win, her piece was a lot more detailed and I especially loved the little mouse that is perched in the tank! Such a cute little touch!

As the winner of that round, Hula Herbert will go on to compete in round 2. I will definitely be there! I’ll be sure to keep you updated.

What do you think – who’s your favourite?
