The MMAG met at the Palace Arts Gallery in Redcar, where they formed their original group called Happy Mondays. They became firm friends and formed an art family, meeting once a month to share ideas and enjoy being creative together. However, when Palace Arts closed down, the group were left without a meeting place, until The Heritage Gallery offered a space that they could continue their creativity and renamed themselves, quite fittingly, Mixed Media Art Group.
This exhibition promises to be a diverse and intriguing display, consisting of a selection of each of the artist’s eclectic visual responses.

BLANC Cosmetics Clinic based in St George’s House provides aesthetic and beauty treatments including non-surgical procedures, threading, waxing, facials and nails. With a team of three, BLANC Cosmetics Clinic moved into St George’s House in February and haven’t looked back.

When speaking about why BLANC Cosmetics Clinic chose St George’s House, company owner Zahra Khan said: “St. George’s House is a great fit for us, the location is perfect because it’s so central for our clients. The office space itself was another appeal, they’re spacious and we loved the high ceilings, it’s so open and airy, creating the right space for us.

“The building owners Martin and Peter were great from the very start and were really helpful and accommodating. I would absolutely recommend St George’s House for any business that requires an office at great value in the centre of Bolton.”

Between 5pm and 7pm

Exhibition runs from Monday 17th January until Friday 25th February

Stan Davison was born in Dumbarton, Scotland in 1949, but both his mother and father were born in Hartlepool, where Stan has now lived most of his life on the Headland, after leaving Scotland at the age of 17. Stan is a self-taught artist with no art school training, but has been painting since he was in primary school.
He finds inspiration in the town’s people and places, but also depicts his own personal experiences to create dreamscapes that combine the real and surreal. 
Stan says:
“A lot of my work is done from photographs and drawings, but it is put together to form dreamscapes – it is both reality and the surreal.
 Many of the paintings are a portrayal of my life and are influenced by chapters and incidents from it.”
Stan is inspired by the ‘Old Masters’ like Velazquez and Caravaggio and elements of their work are captured within his paintings.

Michelle Carter, Bespoke Financial Group’s operations manager said: “Bespoke Financial Group is ever growing and has been looking for the perfect space to relocate in Teesside for some time. It was important to us to move to a building that had rich Teesside roots along with having up to date facilities to support our team.

“Cargo Fleet Offices has just that – a history deep from being local council offices and not to forget British Steel Headquarters – as soon as we walked in, we knew this was a place for Bespoke with its roots on nearly every wall and the attention to detail in the decor.

But why should you choose Bolton to base your business? We have a few reasons for you:

Increased developments

 Just a four-minute drive from St George’s House is River Croal, soon to be home of the exciting £150m Church Wharf development.

The development will create a contemporary neighbourhood in the centre of Bolton, including new homes, retail outlets and leisure facilities. This boost to the local economy will attract wider businesses, new customers and enhance potential opportunities to existing businesses in the town.


Bolton council has recently committed £100 million to the town’s regeneration, claiming to have already attracted over £1 billion of pipeline investment in residential, commercial, retail and leisure spaces.

Bolton Transport Interchange

Bolton has many great transport links for individuals commuting to work including the A666 link to the M60 motorway.

Record number of new tenants across Teesside office space for Middlesbrough property developers

Posted on: October 26th, 2021 by Sophie Kyle

Middlesbrough property developers, Python Properties has seen a record number of new tenants across their Teesside office buildings.

The organisation’s portfolio of commercial properties within Teesside, consisting of Boho Zero, Cargo Fleet Offices and The Co-operative Buildings, have taken over 25,000 square foot of new lettings in this year alone.

The new tenants who have taken up space include the UK’s number one insurance broker Bespoke Financial, Middlesbrough Council, Echo-U and global engineering company Mott Macdonald.

The new tenants come after Python Properties has invested over £300,000 into improving their three buildings during the pandemic. This includes their most recent transformation of Boho Zero, formerly known as Royal Middlehaven House.

More than your typical office space, each building has a range of amenities including art galleries that can be used as exhibition space, manned receptions, on-site cafes and secure car parking to name a few.

Discussing the recent success, Martin Johnson, partner at Python Properties said: “It has been great to see a large number of new tenants across our three buildings in Teesside, including many new companies and companies from outside of our area, particularly during this extremely challenging time.

“When we first acquired the buildings, they were run down and in need of a major overhaul, we have since worked hard to regenerate each building into high spec office space built for modern day businesses, so it’s great to see local, national and indeed global companies recognising this and choosing us as a place to base their business.”

Partner, Peter Broome added: “We strive to offer more than the standard commercial rental experience whether this be through our flexible lease terms or low service charges.

“We’re dedicated to providing the best service to our tenants and even provide bespoke office fit-outs to meet our tenant’s exact requirements.”

Speaking on their recent move to Middlesbrough, new tenants in Boho Zero, Echo-U said: “We chose to open a third contact centre in the heart of Middlesbrough city centre because it offered so many benefits to the business, including a large talented pool of local people that would be able to deliver the outstanding customer service we provide and a well-connected location.

“Boho Zero was chosen because of its large, modern office interior, central location and added perks for our team including on-site cafe, gallery and parking. Python Properties are a professional and dynamic business partner to work with that have delivered a great office product in a very quick timescale for us.”

Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston said: “It’s been the toughest 18 months in living memory, so this is an amazing achievement by a fantastic local company.

“Python Properties are delivering the sort of office accommodation modern, ambitious employers are looking for, and that’s helping to create jobs and prosperity.

“Middlesbrough’s on the up, and success stories like this are building the foundations of an amazing future.”

Python Properties are commercial property specialists with over 25 years’ experience and their portfolio of commercial properties also expands beyond Teesside to include West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.
