Bloomsbury is no longer considered London’s artistic centre, but it used to be, with poets, writers and artists living in the town houses that now find themselves covered in blue heritage plaques. The Orange Dot Gallery opened in the area in 2010 and has been doing more than its bit to restore Bloomsbury’s artistic past for the last 18 month.

Bloomsbury is no longer considered London’s artistic centre, but it used to be, with poets, writers and artists living in the town houses that now find themselves covered in blue heritage plaques. The Orange Dot Gallery opened in the area in 2010 and has been doing more than its bit to restore Bloomsbury’s artistic past for the last 18 month.

On Saturday (3 December) it’ll be continuing doing so by turning itself into a one-day pop up record store that will bring together 13 local indie labels.

Abeano, Cascine, Double Denim, Luv Luv Luv Records, Merok, Moshi Moshi, Pictures Music, Something in Construction, Sounds of Sweet Nothing, Tough Love, Transparent, Tri Angle and Young Turks will all set up shop in the gallery from 11am until 7pm, making Christmas shopping a lot easier and more fun than it should be.

There’ll be a piano in the corner too, with various special guests turning up to thump the keys.
