A great night at the AB Cinema ‘The Artist’ event

Further to our article of the 4th of February promoting the AB Cinema’s pop up event on Bournemouth pier. We are glad to say that the event was a great success.

All credit to go to the event organisers at The Arts Bournemouth for a fantastic event. It was a full house that sat to view ‘The Artist’ complete with 1920′s atire. The event started with autograph hunters and paparazzi outside the theatre to welcome guests. This started the night off with a very fun and special feel about it.

The Artist AB Cinema Event 14th February

The audience sat down to view the award winning film, the cinema filled with sounds of guests laughter enjoying the start of the evenings entertainment.

The closing credits were met with a rapturous round of applause, whereupon guests were taken next door to be entertained by the authentic 1920′s ‘Red Fez’ orchestra. Dance lessons were lead ahead of a packed dance floor, where guest lean’t the secrets behind period dance moves.

The idea was original and well received by the guests and we very much look forward to the next event.

The Winchester

Nestled in the bustling triangle area of Bournemouth you will find The Winchester Pub, Bournemouth’s premier arts and entertainment venue.

The Winchester Pub can be found within the walls of a former bank, Its back room still retains its bank vault & Chubb steel door still intact.

They are dedicated to supporting Bournemouth’s thriving arts and music community. Every day of the week they provide diverse entertainment for their patrons. Whether its art, spoken word, theater, street dance, live music or the latest clubbing experience / underground club nights – they cater for all. A very diverse spectrum of genres encompassing many fields, with a continuously evolving and always different art program. They provide a fantastic opportunity in many innovated ways – as a venue to present group exhibitions, band nights & to create dialogue about or through art without bias or preference.

Each event brings its own mix of clientele, all very different from the night before.

Thier Toma Sunday’s Techno / Electronic music nights are always popular with local hotel workers – which bring a large selection of Spanish / Portuguese / Italian nationals to the night.

The Arts

Bournemouth has a thriving and ever expanding Art scene, ranging from the Arts University Bournemouth, through to events held throughout venues across Bournemouth.

But unlike any other small area, the Triangle is host to a very much larger than average collection of talented, creative young people. Finding their hideouts can be tricky though!

Leading the way as a venue of this local talent, across a variety of mediums, from Art and Film to live music and poetry; The Winchester pub has quickly made a name for itself. They are a dedicated, hard working team bringing a vast and wide spectrum of ideas and concepts to a ever increasing volume of people.     We suggest you check out what their doing before going as they cover such a diverse range and audience base.

Above The Winchester is also The Loft, a small group of artist studios nestled at the very top that are at present fully rented out to a selection of people.

The Triangle also has venues such as the large Canvas Loft Bar as well as smaller venues such as The Mad Cucumber, Flirt, The Four Horsemen and of course Smok’in Aces that all have live music on various days. Not also forgetting all the LBGT+ venues in the area as well – It now makes The Triangle one of the premier areas in Bournemouth for live music.

What ever your notion is of a Library (unless you have been) –  forget it! The Bournemouth Library is so much more - as well as  a fantastic display of community, information and reference. It is amongst a host of other venues putting the spotlight on local talent. They have a large selection of display areas  as well as rooms available in this stunning architectural designed building. There is often exhibitions from simple to the large and complex. They are extremely versatile and helpful, This Library, if no other, is a must see in the Triangle, a credit to Bournemouth in both its rich diversity and content but also in its organisation and its pleasant and helpful staff.

White Latern Film is an award winning international feature film production company that is another of a multitude of new buissnesses to have pulled up its roots and moved to The Triangle in the last months of 2013. An intresting company that we shall all be seeing a lot more of I am sure!

The Triangle also plays a growing part in the Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival,                                                                                                        artsbournemouth.org.uk

A stones throw from The Triangle, the Bournemouth International Centre and Bournemouth Pavillion are  known through out the country for hosting a international, vast range of performances from ballet and opera to rock concerts and comedy shows. Including the annual Panto.

 Flirt Cafe is like no other cafe,(It is far from just a cafe, selling food & wine also) It is the heart and soul of The Triangle with occasional live entertainment, exhibitions, poetry nights and book signings.This unusual and quirky venue holds a array of night time entertainment on various nights that have seen a performance of a 32 person choir on one night, a viewing of the latest James Bond film on another and singer / Song writers doing a show for just their hat to be sent round. Believe me – some very professional acts!
