We need your help!
This is a call out for any objects that are RED, GREEN or WHITE.

In order for us to create our festive display in the outpost windows and space we ask you to lend or donate items that are GREEN, RED or WHITE. All objects will be returned. Please note that the objects that you donate / lend do not have to be Christmas themed, any green, red or white objects are welcome in the festive display: dresses, fabrics, toys, ornaments, books, old plastics, boxes…etc.

Starting Saturday 19th November please pop into outpost on the following days with your objects:

  • Mondays – Thursdays between 2pm – 6pm
  • Saturdays between 10am – 1pm

We will be installing the display on the 6th of December so be sure to get your objects in before then!

We are also collecting the stories behind the objects, so when you pop in to drop off your objects, be sure to tell us a little story about where or who you got your objects from or how long you’ve they have been in your possession.


On Wednesday 14th December we are inviting the over 60’s to outpost for a FREE film event. We will be playing “White Christmas”. There will be mulled wine, sherry, mince pies, the lot! Please email: to book yourself or a loved one in. The event will start at 3:30pm.


On Friday 16th December the b-side’s Young Producer Group will be hosting their own performance event on the island. The event will showcase local young talent as well as celebrate the festive season. If you are under 25 and would like to perform at this event please contact: before the 25th November to show your interest.


On Saturday 17th from 1pm – 5pm we will be hosting the fifth Paper Jam by South West Artworks. The artists of South West Artworks will be taking over outpost to display and sell their affordable prints, handmade jewellery, decorations, cards, crafts etc. All of the artwork for sell will be between £1 – £25 and will go directly South West Artworks and the artists that made it. So come on over and support our local artists – it’s going to be great – we know we’re certainly going to be doing some shopping when they’re here.


The Friends of b-side have invited our good friend and artist Alistair Gentry back to outpost this December to do what he does best – to tell us alternate stories, myths and legends, but this time about Christmas.


Recycling unused and unwanted material the b-side team invite you to a day of craft making. Drop in anytime between 11am – 4pm on Sunday 18th December.


We can’t wait! Thanks for reading and we hope to see you soon!
The b-side team.
