RIPE Live:

Peach Melba

The Pain Business


Join us for RIPE Live: Peach Melba / The Pain Business, and enjoy a showcase of new works by local and emerging artists, plus a live DJ set and drinks at the Alfred Arcade and the Alfred Arms.  


Explore our most recent RIPE exhibition at the Alfred Arcade, Peach Melba, a collaborative project that aims to encourage artistic and professional development through a series of skills-sharing activities. Featuring work by 2021 graduates from Solent University and Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.


Visit The Pain Business at the Hidden Wardrobe, where you can enjoy live art and new performances developed by RIPE alumni in collaboration with HA HA Gallery’s Liv Fontaine and actress William Joys.

Explore Covid Crossroads, a new exhibition by photographer Matthew Wardell featuring a collection of images exploring Southampton’s historic Northam Road, on display in the windows of the King Alfred Pub.


The event comes to a close at the Alfred Arms, where you can enjoy a live set by Southampton DJ HANIN. The bar will also be open throughout the evening serving beers, wines and soft drinks. If you’re looking to continue the party, head down to Heartbreakers where HANIN will be spinning the tunes at BDBM’s Midsommar Celebration club night and you can enjoy an exclusive discounted entry at £4 (show your Eventbrite ticket on the door).


We will also be launching both exhibitions online on our YouTube channel.
