We are Adam and Liddy and together we are "Something Less Boring".
With close on 20 years of experience between us coaching, teaching and working with people of all ages. Our aim is to bring art and sport to everyone by creating a safe, friendly, inclusive and entertaining environment.

Art in the Pub
Our art sessions in the pub (bars and cafes too) are aimed at beginners and improvers and anyone who fancies a night out with a drink in one hand and paintbrush in the other. The evenings are guided, step by step with plenty of one to one contact to help you make the most of your skills. However if you feel the urge to forge ahead we won't restrict that rush of creativity.
We also provide all materials, and often a drink too!

We work with a number of creative folks in the local area putting on Silver Jewellery, Punch Needle, Pencil Drawing and crochet workshops, more often than not held at Emberton Pavilion.
we ensure that these events are warm and welcoming with a liberal amount of tea, coffee and cakes available to aid the creative process.
If you are a person with a skill that you'd like to teach others in a workshop and would like to work with us, feel free to get in touch. Similarly if you have a venue that you'd like to hold a workshop in, contact us at
We offer Walking Football for footballers who may be past their sell by date to provide an outlet for that urge to continue playing. Low impact, gentler and non contact (most of the time) an hour of Walking Football can provide 5000 of your daily step target. Great for maintaining fitness for those who can't run quite so comfortably anymore (or even temporarily).
Our ActiveCreative school holiday camps are mornings consisting of arty activities with sporty games included for when the paint is drying and glue sticking.
Football, rugby, tug o war, painting, craft, sculpture, sack race, sprints, three Legged race are some of the activities we try to cram into ActiveCreative.
