Before You Leave is a pop-up exhibition in Stroud, Gloucestershire. As part of the Site Festival 2012, the exhibition will run from the 19th - 21st May.

Following the success of the first Nothing but Navy pop-up shop in Stroud, Gloucestershire in December 2011, NBN is coming to London.
NBN is a brand formed by Central Saint Martins graduate Gem Waggett from a love of the colour navy. The brand currently exists online at www.nothingbutnavyshop.com but will also be featuring at selected pop-up venues throughout 2012.
Items for sale include carefully selected homewares, limited edition artworks and navy one-offs that have been sourced from a range of locations including Paris and America. A number of goods are also available from established brands that produce specific navy items such as Armor Lux, Falcon Enamelware and Moleskine. The brand is unisex, appeals to all ages and has prompted positive response, featuring in the Financial Times 'How to Spend It' list and Selvedge Magazine.
The next navy venture will be held in the annexe of Luna and Curious at 24-26 Calvert Avenue, Shoreditch E2 7JP from Friday 30th March to Wednesday 4th April from 11am to 6pm.
Previewing will take place on Thursday 29th March from 6pm to 8.30pm, all welcome.
Here is a great opportunity to pick up an exquisite etching, lithograph, relief print, collagraph, screenprint, or monoprint this weekend in Stroud. Proceeds from this art sale will be re-invested back into delivering Gloucestershire Printmaking Cooperative, Museum workshops and public programmes.
For twenty three days starting Friday 2nd of December 2011, Stroud will have a new shop.
Nothing but Navy, as the name suggests, will sell only navy products. Hoping to colour-code the Christmas' of Gloucestershire and beyond, it will sell carefully selected lifestyle goods including homewares, garments, stationery and accessories.
If you are partial to a bit of blue, we definitely recommend a visit. However, if your pre Christmas schedule does not permit a jaunt to the South West you do not have to miss out on all of the fun because a selection of items will also be available to purchase on the NBN web shop from Friday 2nd December 2011 at nothingbutnavyshop.com
Please join Nothing but Navy to celebrate opening on Thursday 1st December 2011 from 6.30-9PM at 1 Middle Street, Stroud, Gloucestershire. GL5 1DZ.
