After a few month’s of bringing CreativeMornings via Zoom, we felt like we needed to pause and reset. We’re back this month with a brilliant speaker, illustrator Louisa Fisher and we can’t wait to reconnect with you. We’ll still be running the Zoom breakout rooms to give you a chance to connect with others virtually before settling down to hear Louisa talk about her work in relation to this month’s theme of ‘Spectrum’. See you on the 18th!CM/LMS

8.45am - either grab another coffee and finish that conversation you’d been having before the talk, or dash off to work, college or wherever life takes you - bubbling with inspiration.
Hope to see you there.

Hello lovely people. We’re back for another year of CreativeMornings.
Our monthly theme is ROOTS and it was chosen by CreativeMorningsQuebec - “Courageous, creative work begins below the ground.” Illustrated by Felix Girard - Artiste et illustrateur.
Here in Leamington, we’re off to flyer - teaming up with the amazing Interactive Futures Conference to bring you a talk from The Oliver Twins on the 31st Jan.
Philip and Andrew rose to fame as the ‘Oliver Twins’ in the 1980s when they developed the ‘Simulator’ series and ‘Dizzy’ games which became one of the most famous video game characters of the 1980s. Guinness World Records awarded them “Most Prolific 8 Bit Videogame Developers” since they developed an amazing 25 Amstrad games, 17 Spectrum games & 11 NES games – 26 of those became #1 bestsellers generating around five million sales, and at one point representing over 15% of all UK games sales. They founded Blitz Games in 1990 and built it into one of the largest and most successful UK Game development Studios. Helping establish their Base of Leamington Spa as one of the most respected game development areas in the world.
It’s December, it’s the last CreativeMornings of the year and we’ll be celebrating in SILENCE.
We get it. This time of year can get hectic and you may just want that extra hour in bed - especially if you’ve been boozing at your Xmas party the night before. We’ve thought about though, this month’s speaker - the fantastic Alfie Amadeus - is known for his mesmerising acoustic numbers and he’ll be playing some of his material as you gently come to over breakfast.
He’ll then be talking to us about his use of Silence in his music, playing more of his work as he goes.
We’d love to see you all on the 13th to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year before the festivities take over!
