Courtenay Creative is proud to present –

Curated by Gino Acevedo, the award winning visual effects Creative Director behind movies such as Avatar, Planet of The Apes, The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings, ‘Things That Go Bump In The Night’ promises to start your Halloween week with a bang.

The exhibition opens on Friday 26th October with a special event and a limited number of tickets available to fans to interact and engage directly with some of the exhibiting artists and to witness how sculptures are created, how horror make-up works and further artworks that have never been made available for the public to view.
