About Martin Bedford:

After arriving in Sheffield in 1976 as an art student, Martin began his long trek of avoiding a proper job by becoming a founder member of The Leadmill and producing their posters from 1980-92. Since then he has maintained his quest by supplying posters for most of the bands, venues and promoters in town. Martin has also produced a plethora of posters for gigs across Europe and the USA. Further avoidance strategies over the years have seen him manage bands, clubs, pubs, venues, promote gigs,exhibitions & installations, provide décor for raves and run crews and stages at festivals. In 2014, Martin started the Honey Bee Blues Club, which currently runs 6-8 gigs a month in and around the city. Basically, he’s done everything possible to avoid hard work. The posters in our fabulous shop represent some of the results of a dissolute life.

Tom Crofts: Singer/songwriter heavily influenced by good old timey music ranging from delta blues, to ragtime, country and jazz.

This exhibition will be running until 1st May
