Hello! My name Is Jade, an actress and 200 hour yoga teacher @yoganaflow.  I am excited to start teaching at Desk Lodge, Basingstoke and to introduce you to the world of yoga and how it can benefit you in so many ways! 

I have been practicing yoga for 5 years now and teaching for nearly 1 year and 1/2.  I fell into yoga when I was studying to be an actress in New York City! The stresses of castings overload of work was too much.. 

As an energetic person I love the physical practice of yoga which helps to build up strength and flexibility. Since I started my journey I have realised the benefits of meditation and breath work which I also include in my sessions. My classes are fun, challenging and for all abilities. 

With a new focus every week I am looking forward that YOGANA start your yoga journey with me...

Taking place at DeskLodge Basingstoke on the 24th July 6pm.

Secret Art Launch Party

Secret Art Launch Party

Bubbly, Bertie and Boob Cake…

It’s the Secret Art Launch Party!
 

Tickets are now available for the launch party of the inaugural Secret Art Basingstoke on 19th July at Desklodge in Belvedere House, Basingview - come join us!

1.jpg

Thanks to the kind people at Desklodge who have donated their space for the evening, we’ll be drinking bubbly and catching the first sneaky peak at the entire postcard collection before anyone else in this see-it-to-believe-it space; there’s a beach, a Zen room - there’s even a Narnia Wonderland hidden behind a wardrobe!

We've also got a few delicious extras (aside from the delicious canapes);

What is Secret Art Basingstoke

Taking place between 23rd July and 4th August 2018, Secret Art Basingstoke is an exhibition of hundreds of postcard-sized original works of art donated by artists, celebrities, dignitaries, graduates and illustrators. With no brief in medium or subject, the collection promises to be an eclectic mix of small but perfectly formed paintings, drawings and photographs.

The two week exhibition will be split across four spaces in Basingstoke town centre; THAT Gallery, The Creation Space, The Discovery Centre and The Willis Museum & Sainsbury Gallery. The entire collection will then reunite at The Creation Space on Saturday 4th August, where every single postcard will be on sale for the affordable price of £20 each.

And the secret? The identity of the artist - you'll only know who created your miniature masterpiece once you've bought it.

For a chance to get a sneak peek at the entire collection before everyone else, we’re holding a launch night on 19th July at Desklodge. The evening will include live music, art demonstrations and a charity auction. Tickets are available via the NCT booking page.

All proceeds will benefit the Brookvale breastfeeding counselling drop-in service (NCT B.A.B.I.E.S - Babies and Breastfeeding; Information, Encouragement, Support.)

Special Guest Bertie Carvel

We’re very excited to have Bertie Carvel with us to kick off our charity auction! Bertie has twice won the Laurence Olivier Award: for his performances as Miss Trunchbull in Matilda the Musical and Rupert Murdoch in Ink. On television, he is known for playing Jonathan Strange in Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell and as Simon, the cheating husband, in Doctor Foster.

2.jpg

  Charity Auction

We’ve got tons of fabulous lots, including top price Warhorse tickets, photo shoots with award winning Studio 1314 and Basingstoke’s very own Cristina Barton, miniature portraits by Jocelyn Lawman and a family pass to The New Forest Wildlife Park. Check the website for details of all the lots as they come in.

3.jpg

 Art Demonstrations – Watch local artist Fatima Pantoja (from the ‘Sitting with Jane’ project) demonstrating her portraiture skills, and then sit for a quick portrait!

Live Music - Pianist Thomas Barfoot will keep us entertained all evening.

Boob cake – It wouldn’t be an NCT event without it! Cakes by Chris has created a boobilicious cake – each boob a different flavour!

Goodie bags – For the first 20 guests through the door.

Early Bird ticket £5 (prosecco and canapes on arrival)

General Admission £10 (prosecco and canapes on arrival)

Corporate ticket £100 (6 seats at dedicated table, canapes and bottle of prosecco)

Virtual Reality Blasts into Basingstoke

Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) will enable us to see are world in a whole new way. It’s all about creating a believable environment, tricking our senses into thinking something’s real when it isn’t, and then interacting with all that’s going on as though it is. Virtual Reality conjures up thoughts of gaming and 3D cinema, but it’s application is diverse covering uses in medicine, education, the military and flight simulation where computer generated scenarios cleverly simulate the real world. But, delivering this virtual world seamless requires anytime, anywhere connectivity and that’s what the 5G revolution will bring about. Making these exciting technologies part of everyone’s life and not just about gamers!

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council in collaboration with The University of Surrey 5G Innovation Centre and Desk Lodge would like to invite you to the launch of its Virtual Reality lab. Connected to the state-of-the-art 5G test bed in Basingstoke, it combines the immersive and interactive capabilities of Virtual Reality with the key enabling technology of 5G. If you’re an SME or corporate, come and experience what live streaming with these revolutionary technologies can do for your business. It’s a not to be missed opportunity to get a glimpse of the future.

This event is organised as part of TechTown, an URBACT project funded by the European Regional Development Fund, which brought together 11 European medium-sized cities. The 5G VR launch will also be the opportunity to celebrate the end of the TechTown project and share some of the plans to continue to support the growth of the digital tech sector in Basingstoke.
