24th, 25th, 26th May, 2019 - report from The Bike Shed Show screenings, London, UK
May bank holiday every year brings the now iconic Bike Shed Show at Tobacco Docks in London. Director Gareth Roberts, as one of the original founders of the Bike Shed, has witnessed the shows grow in the last six years from not much more than a meeting of friends in a single arch in Shoreditch, to an internationally acclaimed event that attracts over 15,000 people over the weekend.
The show was impressive as always, with some absolute masterpieces on display. Curated with a keen eye for quality and with big dose of generosity, the show has become an international benchmark.
This year saw the introduction of the ‘cinema’ for the first time, and we were delighted to be invited to screen the film for the first time to a UK public audience. The film was screened twice, both on the Saturday and Sunday, and both screenings were packed, with audience members standing and sitting on the floor as all the seats were taken. The film was really well received, and we spent the weekend on our stand chatting about the film to enthusiasts from all over the globe.
We saw many old faces and dear friends and made many more over the weekend. It was great to pay host to Craig Rodsmith, our good friend who came to London for the show.
It was exhausting, but fun.
