Well, actually it’s not new new as you would have found Sock Horror there in December last year, but they are new in that it’s a new year, a new term, and a new series of creatures.
The Great Hall complex at Lancaster Uni is a focal point for arts, housing both the Peter Scott Art Gallery and the Nuffield Theatre and a great little coffee bar in the middle.
The Nuffield Theatre stages a multitude of productions and concerts ranging from small shows to full scale orchestral performances and the Peter Scott Gallery houses an international art collection which includes Japanese and Chinese art and a selection of works by 20th century British and European artists.
And it is here that you will now find Sock Horror!
Does that sound like a harmonious assembly of work? I’m not sure, and to be honest neither are the curators, but I do know that someone up there loves them as their numbers keep dwindling.
So what does this mean? Well, it means that if you are in the Lancaster area and want to find out about Sock Horror (or need a caffeine boost), you’re going to have to get your arse over to the Peter Scott Gallery… and soon… so that you’re not disappointed when there’s none left… again!
