Barrow’s Newest Art Spaces Host Opening Exhibition
102 Abbey Road launches with West Coast Photo Festival
The doors to 102 Abbey Road will be open again this Autumn for the first time in many
years, welcoming people to enjoy free creative exhibitions, photography and digital arts
workshops and a pop-up coffee shop.
The formerly derelict building has been refurbished by Creative Studios Cumbria, a charity
set up by Signal Film and Media founders Kerry Kolbe and Loren Slater to provide
affordable, high quality creative spaces for charities and community groups.
The building will form part of the adjoining ‘Cooke’s Studios’ and will be officially opened by
Barrow Borough Mayor, Councillor Helen Wall at the launch of West Coast Photo Festival,
the largest digital art festival ever to showcase the rugged beauty of Cumbria’s West Coast,
on 7th October 2021 at 6pm, an event to which all are welcome.
