One of our big passions is art and here at Lingfield Point we have a number of thought-provoking public artworks.
There’s Futurescope, a series of 45ft circular images as well as art in surprising places: a lightbox in an underground walkway, our ‘yarnbombed’ trees and ‘signage’ and a bingo-inspired graffiti in one of the many car parks.
Art is just one of the things that make us the best place to go for office space in Darlington.
Held at the Great North Museum: Hancock, it was grandly titled ‘A night at the museum’ and it certainly lived up to expectations. We enjoyed fantastic company, delicious food and live entertainment from a rather good amateur band of Newcastle’s lawyers. The charitable auction and raffle raised an impressive figure for The Sponsors’ Club’s new fund to support culture in the North East.
But really, our highlight was the awards.
Prior to the evening’s festivities The Sponsors’ Club had called for nominations for cultural champions from the business world, businesses which engaged with and made a significant contribution to the region’s arts.
As befitting the 21st birthday dinner, The Sponsors’ Club honoured 21 businesses and individuals, announcing the shortlist in the form of a cryptic poem, which left us guessing, but pretty sure that we had been selected!
We had! And we received a delightful little award that now has pride of place in our office, as well as having our photo taken with the other patrons.
All in all a fantastic celebration of art in the region that raised money for future cultural initiatives – and which we’re looking forward to being a part of.
