Big Shop Friday

Big Shop Friday is an artist-led organisation and arts space based in Central Milton Keynes, operating on the ground floor of a multi-storey carpark. We provide a space for the creative community and support emerging talent. Our goal is to nurture, inspire, and grow the community of people who create. Big Shop Friday is independent, artist-led and non-profit. We’re organised and run by our co-directors as well as the incredible support of friends, family and loyal Big-Shoppers!
Big Shop Friday is Daniel Chehade, Roisin Callaghan and Emily Cheshire.

Big Shop Friday opened every Friday throughout July 2017 by Daniel Chehade in the waiting room of The Old Bus Station, Milton Keynes. It was a pilot – an experiment to see who might turn up, what they want and if there was any need for such a space in the city.

Word spread and a community grew. People came back, then they brought a friend and so on. Over those four days we established the beginnings of a new network of creatives and contemporaries, one which continues to grow.

In October 2017 the Shop re-opened as an artist-run café and shop based at The Old Bus Station. Stocking some of the best magazines around, from art and design, to fashion, photography and architecture, most of our titles were not available anywhere else in the city. Big Shop Friday were also proud hosts to the best coffee in Milton Keynes from Carlo’s Coffee Kitchen. Carlo is one of very few speciality coffee makers in the area who also roasts his own coffee.
