Green Rooms Hotel is happy to show Artist Hannah Thomas' first London exhibition Rebel Visions, a project exploring atmosphere and mood, celebrating a form of controlled chaos in materials and technique, and liberation from self-imposed limitations.
Showing from 11th of May until July, Hannah’s work is intensely personal and expresses something elusive, impatient and amorphous, reflecting her taste for the dark and romantic.
Hannah Thomas studied Art in University and went on to be a music photographer working in London for 10 years, regularly shooting for music publications, bands and working as part of film crews and tours. She then moved away from that to pursue more personal work and break new ground artistically.
Hannah currently works out of her studio in Abergavenny, Wales , and is due to continue working there until September 2019.
Her work is due to be exhibited in this years Abergavenny Arts Festival in June.
Green Rooms happily opens the doors of its Residents Lounge to The Work Club, a female-focused members club and co-working space for women to create, connect + collaborate.Read More

There is a display in our restaurant currently of work by ceramicist Maria Cabrera. The lovely item by this local artist are for sale and would make lovely gifts. Come and have a look next time you’re popping in for lunch, or if you’re staying at Green Rooms - take a piece of the hotel away with you! Following Green Rooms’ collaboration with Denby, and following the introduction of some unique Japanese crockery into our current restaurant Oita Kitchen, Cabrera is the next chapter in the hotel’s interesting relationship with earthware.
Maria began working with ceramics in Columbia in 1988. In 1990, she won a scholarship to study glazing techniques, for six months, in Nagoya, Japan. When she returned to Colombia she ran a successful studio in Bogota developing her style. All her pieces are handmade - thrown or slab built, fired, and then decorated individually before being fired again, so each piece is unique.
Maria wishes to make things that are useful and beautiful and likes thinking about people enjoying the pieces she has made. She also teaches lessons and runs workshops from her studio.

Kicking in from 1st June 2018 our popular Breakfast Club has a new summer menu which is as follows...
It's another action-packed month here with several bands and acts entertaining Green Rooms guests and visitors on the weekends in our bar. All welcome and free entry!
This Friday we have Fancy Junket! A jazz/pop duo from the South of France. 6pm-10pm.
And then coming up soon it's Akimbo - LIVE on the 22nd June, another fantastic duo. We asked their lead singer Nell Greco to describe the act and she said:
"Akimbo is all askew. It's messing with pop, playing with jazz, and finding space in time. Created from a love of complex simplicity, angular harmony and serious fun. We're inspired by the likes of Tom Waits, The Dirty Three, Eva Cassidy andBill Frisell, Akimbo play the music they love, whether original or covered, and are ever in flux"

Personal information which we collect
We collect your personal information and information that is provided by you when you contact us to book a room at Green Rooms, or do so on behalf of someone else. Or when you enquire about holding an event here such as a party, wedding reception or conference. When you sign up to our newsletter we keep your email address - for the purpose of sending you the newsletter, but we do not pass this information on to anyone else.
We may also keep your information if you enter a competition, leave a review of the hotel or make a complaint.
Information kept on file - having been provided by you - can include your Full Name, Address, Email Address, Telephone Number, Payment Details, Identification - e.g. Passports or a Driving License. We do not keep debit or credit card details.
Personal information provided by third parties
If you interact with our social media channels or leave a review - say on Google Reviews, TripAdvisor or via a third party like Booking.Com then this information may be logged and kept on file - or added to an existing profile of you if you're a guest who has stayed with us. This is very unlikely but in theory the circumstance could arise, for example if you were involved in a dispute with Green Rooms and we were collecting information to handle the situation with as broad an assessment as possible.
What we do with your information
Information collected by us and kept in our system is used to prepare your reservation and stay, in accordance to a booking contract and to make everything right for your visit. We do not pass your information on to other people and we only use it for marketing purposes with your prior permission.
If you are hosting an event at the hotel or have special requirements and information related to the event then this might be passed internally - For example, a group table might need to be laid for breakfast each day, certain equipment may be needed for live music or certain preparations relating to things such as accessibility or dietary requirements.

Currently we would only contact you with promotional offers via our hotel newsletter or via social media channels - which you would only receive or see if you choose to receive our newsletter and/or follow GR on social media.
We may provide anonymous information to hotel partners - such TripAdvisor or booking.Com - for market research, which is different to direct marketing and helps us improve how we present our services online. For example this could be stat about guests like ‘Which countries our guests come from’, their general age group or how many nights they prefer to stay and which kinds of rooms are more popular.
We could use your information to prevent fraud, and to carry out security checks on your behalf if we suspect there may be an issue.
Do we keep your information forever?

Your basic information on our booking system will stay there so if you re-visit we can see your profile from the last time that you booked with us. After 7 years the data retention period might be terminated in order to keep our system fresh, but you can contact us prior to this and ask to have your profile removed sooner. If future law changes this then we will update this policy and announce our changes.

You can contact us at any time about the data we hold about you, why we have it - and ask which GR team members have access to it, as well as when and where we got that information. It will be from three places - You as a former guest, You as somebody who has got in touch with GR, or You as someone who has connected with us on social media or a third party website that we work with. In most cases we are happy to send you the information that we have about you.
It is reasonable to give us a couple of weeks to get back to you on a request of this nature as our small independent hotel has a busy hands-on-deck team.
We are also happy to update information that we have on you and you have the right to ask us to clear your profile (if you are guest, after your stay)
You can also Unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time and Unfollow the hotel on social media channels at any time.

Come and see works at Green Rooms by Lou Hazelwood. Showing now every day throughout May, these striking images have a lot going on - including - brace yourselves - a contribution from Lou's cat, as he explains here:
"In this work I was really interested in how the chemical deterioration of analogue film and prints looks and how this has an impact on how we make an image, a memory. These images are chemically stained. Two are chemically stained prints and the others are chemically stained 35mm colour film. The films were put through different chemicals prior to been processed such as bleach, caustic soda & black leather dye and through a wash in the washing machine. They were experiments and have had unique impacts on the structure of the film and created the abstracted images seen"
"The chemically stained prints were more of a happy accident, although that wasn’t my first reaction! One of my cats peed on the prints whilst they were laid out for editing. It was only after the initial ‘arrrgghh’ moment that I dried the prints off and re-looked at them, saw how interesting they were and they have become part of this series of works. So they are perhaps what you would call naturally chemically stained… "
You can listen to an audio/podcast about Lou's recent exhibition in Hull, including some of the same works and similar themes and practicses:https://audioboom.com/posts/6441523-artist-lou-hazelwood-at-hip-gallery
