It’s been a long time since our town’s Fishmarket smelled of fish. When the market closed down it was colonised by a bunch of creatives who turned it into an arts centre. They conjured resources from thin air when every public budget in the area was being slashed and have gradually, tenaciously, built it up into something attracting all kinds of attention.
Today it reopened after transforming its cafe from somewhere that looked like a student’s living room to somewhere that looks like a place a student might go for a coffee. You never know what you are going to see there and when you think about it, how many places can you really say that about? It’s brilliant. Highly magical, no doubt about it.
