'Hope Sails High' as Lancaster DJ performs across Lancaster to welcome easing of lockdown
With the easing of lockdown now in full flow, local DJ Nick Dagger is celebrating the occasion to promote the reopening of businesses in the district, while having a bit of fun!
Nick will be performing a live DJ set in different locations across the Lancaster district and streaming to you at home so you can party and have a peek at all the businesses.
“The lockdowns, due to Covid-19, have affected local business and the night life economy immensely with some venues not being able to open for over a year," Nick said.
"It feels like the perfect opportunity to welcome back our independent businesses that our community depend on, whilst preparing for when we can get back to enjoying live music again hopefully in the summer.”
First up is Arteria. Located in the heart of Lancaster, Arteria is housed in a restored 1800s building where you can discover a shopping experience with a personal touch.
Arteria offers its customers stylish and innovative products with a strong emphasis on quality and value.
Owner Jane Richardson-Hogg is looking forward to welcoming Nick into the gallery space for the event.
She said: “Suddenly thrown into another lockdown in January resulting in us having to close the doors for the third time wasn't quite what we had in mind for our first exhibition of 2021, ‘Affinity’.
"As with the other lockdowns we’ve felt very supported by our local customers and have successfully continued with our remote shopping service, offering our unique personal approach to online click + collect.
"With the route to reopening insight we were approached by Nick Dagger, whom we have worked with before, with the opportunity to work with him on an exciting new idea to bring our customers and the local community something a little bit different.
"Emerging from lockdown Arteria will host an inspiring collaboration of talents between art, retail and music.”
The artistic collaboration continues with the support of Patricia Haskey, an Arteria permanent exhibitor, who kindly agreed to the use of her image and its name for this event.
