Pop up inspiration - Propstore

Startacus RSS

by Alastair Cameron

If you are in the midst of preparing to run your first pop up shop / space / cafe and so on, you could do no better than to take a look at the Propstore - the National Theatre's unique summertime pop-up riverfront café-bar...

Propstore, the National Theatre’s pop up riverfront café-bar is back for 2013. Built with and from the sets and scenery from National Theatre productions and filled with some of the Theatre’s iconic and favourite props, the cafe offers a unique and inspirational space for all popup enthusiasts.

Propstore National Theatre Now we appreciate that for most ‘pop-uppers’ (is that a word?!) having a budget to create an expensive and temporary space is not at all realistic. However one can only be inspired by the unique nature of the NT café-bar and it may just help you consider how you can make your space stand out and attract both the general “walk in” public and a wee bit of press.

We previously featured the a shopping centre made of Shipping Containers and the wonderful Movement Cafe and so we add Propstore to the list of Pop up inspirations on our radar!

Checkout the short video below - hosted by BBC 6Music DJ Lauren Laverne that best highlights many of the props and the surroundings itself of the Propstore. 

If you have a pop-up space or know of a pop-up space that you reckon we should feature - email [email protected] and we can take a look!
