THE Talent Gallery reopened on Saturday (June 8) when its new curator, Nina King, was joined by her family to reopen the doors of the popular town centre attraction which had been set to close.

Ms King was joined by her husband Richard, aunty Debbie, mother Kate and daughter Rose when she welcomed members of the public to see the new-look gallery.

It comes after a ‘VIP’ preview on Friday night which saw around seventy invited guests turn out to get a preview of the gallery, which exhibits the work of local artists, with attendees reportedly packed out onto the street.

Former curator Nicholas Cole - who had planned to close the business - was “delighted” when Nina stepped in to take it on.
