Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all having a lovely few days and gearing up for the final 4 days of PHOTOVILLE!

As many of you know we are going to try and have the PDN / Curator Party – which was rained out last week – this Thursday from 7pm – 10pm

To receive a VIP wristband – please RSVP – do reply early as capacity is limited.

PHOTOVILLE will also be open to the public during the party, and there will be a bar and food trucks on site throughout the night. [For those without the VIP bracelet, it’s a cash bar/food service].

Many many thanks and see you all Thursday we hope!


Sam, Dave and Laura
