A New Exhibition at Kilau, Little Belmont Street

A new exhibition of work from Sarah McGarva and Lola.

Monday 10th January – Saturday 26th February.

“From The Rooftops”

Sarah is that girl with the tangled curly hair springing out from behind her camera. She makes a living writing and designing and web editing for people who make a living making a difference, she spends most of her spare cash on books and cinema tickets, and she likes to portray herself as ridiculously crafty (although ridiculously good at procrastinating is closer to the truth).

Sarah been snapping and doodling for years, but this is her first exhibition. She’s got a lot of admiration for gritty realism but in her own home she’d rather have images which make her smile – and so that’s what she creates. She hopes some of these pictures put a smile on your face, too.

Sarah witters on a bit at www.sarahrooftops.co.uk and drinks a lot of tea.




By day Lola is a sensible girl who takes care of old books, manuscripts, glass plate negatives, photographs, papyri and ostraca. By night she loves to craft, blast her senses with music and films, and take photos every spare moment she has. She fell into this exhibition by accident, but then few Super Awesome things in life are planned.

She hopes one day to have her own dragon, and then maybe look for a prince.


A New Year at Kilau

Goodness me! The New Year already!

We’re getting slowly back into the swing of things at both shops. For those of you who were down on campus yesterday (Mon 3rd) I’m sorry for misleading you buy saying in the previous post that we would be open! We’re open today tho and Amanda is slinging out fine lattes.

latte buy Amanda

We’ll be closing today at 5pm but open our usual hours as of tomorrow.

2010 was been a great year, seeing our first full year being open at campus. We’ve got some great plans for upstairs and the garden space out back so stay tuned.

We’ve got some good exhibitions lined up for little belmont street too, starting Sunday 9th January with work from Sarah McGarva and Laura Castle (more on that soon).

Thank you for all the support this past year at campus, and the past SEVEN(!) years at little belmont street. 2011 is going to be great!
