Spring might be in the air but it’s still nippy, so wrap up warm and head down to Green Park this Sunday for a feast of delicious hot and local food, from wood-fired pizza to fresh pasta to veggie curries, raw chocolate, cakes and bakes, hot sandwiches, gluten-free goodies, preserves…we’re hungry just thinking about it!

Luke-HPsst…Don’t miss Our resident TV star Luke from The Stencil Shed is joining us again this Sunday and as luck would have it, the episode of Shed of the Year that he first appeared in is being repeated on Channel 4 at 12pm that day. So come and see him before or after and ask him all about his new fame and fortune. Read all about him on our previous blog post too!

Meet a TV star on Sunday!

Our resident graffiti artist and spraypainter, Luke Hollingsworth now gets recognised in Tescos ever since he made it to the final of Channel 4’s Shed of the Year

Luke, aka Syd from The Stencil Shed. Friendly and famous. Spot the award in the centre, bottom row.

Earlier this year Luke Hollingsworth, aka Syd from The Stencil Shed achieved the accolade of runner-up in Channel 4’s “Amazing Spaces/Shed of the Year” with his shed-based studio. He came second (he says he was “robbed”) but did get to meet presenter George Clark as well as appearing on TV. Watch his starring appearance below.

These days Syd is something of a local hero, having appeared in the numerous newspaper articles, as well as being recognised when he’s out and about. On life since the show he says: “It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind. Weirdest moment was being asked for an autograph the day after the final while shopping in Tesco!”

Syd has been with us for over a year and says “I’m pleased to be a regular attendee at the Bath Artisan Market selling my artistic skills all executed in my shed. I can remember when I first applied for a pitch that a selling point on the blurb was ‘maybe you’ll find the next Banksy’ at the market. Well…. I’m not Banksy but I’m very proud to be nationally known as ‘The Stencil Shed’.
