There will be a craft table inside the Combermere with postcard activities for all age groups. Feathers, glitter and glue galour! Have a go at ‘Pimping a Postcard’ and submitting it to the raffle. You will also find the Junction festival organisers inside the Combermere who will be there to answer any queries about the event.
During the event you will find stewards dotted around the area with pieces of chalk. They will be recording the activities on the day by outlining your shadows on the pavements and taking a photographic record. If you don’t fancy being photographed please get out the way of the camera! This record will be uploaded onto this site after the event.
We would also like to encourage you to fill in our evaluation postcards available throughout the event at the Junction Stage, The Chindit, The Royal Oak and The Combermere. Ideas for next year’s junction very welcome.
The event is organised by the Wolverhampton Contemporary Art Forum and anyone looking to become a member is encouraged to come along to the Pop-up Junction Festival and talk to a member of the group based inside The Combermere.
