AN eccentric pub landlord will open his art gallery to the public for the next four weeks.

Anthony Youel, 52, who has featured in BBC Three show Boom Town, plans to display his exhibits in the gallery at his pub, The Monkey, from 1pm on Sunday.

He will also take part in a live installation between 2pm and 6pm at The Monkey on Sunday.

"I'm going to be in situ, I'm going to be in the zone," Anthony said about the four-hour live exhibit.

"If the exhibition is successful, I'll open it once a month."

The gallery will also be open for the following three Sundays.

My friends and I have had personal tour of Mr Youels gallery. Some of his artwork is fantastic. The people at the monkey are very welcoming. See past the quirky car park. That's his sense of humour plus your kids will prefer the outside gallery. Worth a visit... It's 1 thing that's been ticked on my bucket list :-)

the man's an idiot,turned a good pub into a shithole,iv lived up there most of my life and really saddens me to see the monkey turned in to an eye sore.
so dont give me good luck to him or forward thinking art lovers come together,the man is in serious need of some professional help.

You are spot on Bungi. The man lost it years ago and quite frankly he shouldn't be allowed out without a escort. Obviously the people on here who are slagging your comments off on here have no great knowledge of this character and his bizarre behaviour.

As a further thought, yes he's owns the Monkey and as such it is his to do with whatever he likes within reason but with that ownership should come a responsibility to the building itself the wider community and area which he has failed on all three counts!

I know Anthony Youel and yes he is a little eccentric but he has a heart of gold and I think if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all. I didn't particularly like the artist who cut animals in half and said that was art but he got millions. So it is each to there own and good luck today Anthony and I wish you every success.

gaz im from thurgoland iv been there iv told him along with half of thurgoland and hood green that its crap
have you been and told him how good it is?

Reply Posted by gaz on Monday September 23 2013 at 10:21
I've been and told him to do what makes him happy. I also used to attend REGULARLY when he ran it as a pub. But I fail to see why thurgoland shoud be up in arms or hood green for that matter as its in neither village really is it...anyway moan about the car park....yes, I agree it could be tidy, so if he clears the car park will the personal attacks stop.. ? No I don't think so, you're on a bandwagon feeding off other people's comments...leave the bloke alone

Yes but I bet when "last of the Sumner wine" were filming there you were claiming to anyone who'd listen that it ess your local & you drank there regularly...weren't you...!

Been popping in the monkey after fishing for the last two months people were saying u don't want to go in there he will lock u in what a load of bollox Antony's a top bloke with some great stories why people want to abuse him I don't know the blokes done me no harm all he has done is diversify and follow his passion if the locals don't like this then there's plenty more pubs up road
I like toake my own mind up give the guy a chance his passion and energy should be encouraged not destroyed if h don't like him don't go
I will continue to enjoy his company your loss

Reply Posted by tony on Wednesday September 25 2013 at 18:48
