‘For the past 18 years, The Shed, near the market town of Malton, has been responsible for some of the smallest and most inspired art events in the country.’ Guardian

“And no matter how strange they sound, there always seem to be people prepared to come from miles away to his North Yorkshire village to get in on the act – artists, musicians and poets, as well as spectators…. the art world could do with more of his kind of far-reaching woolly thinking.” Daily Telegraph

“The Shed is the best venue in England” David Thomas

“It’s fantatstic” Simon Armitage

“I muse on the idea of future cultural historians citing a shed door as the fulcrum of a rural arts renaissance” Ian McMillan
