If you dare...

Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX

Not many about but this ‘free’ exhibition is well worth a cheeky visit. Featuring the works of 30 artists plus, you will find pieces that explore all angles of gender, identity, politics and class (from the 60s to present day) using drag as an expression and to question life.  

Enjoy works from such established artists as Robert Mapplethorpe and Cindy Sherman, the exhibition also includes self-portraits by a younger generation of contemporary artists who have recently embraced drag as an art form, including Adam Christensen and Victoria Sin.

Rather than offering a linear or chronological narrative, this exhibition aims to present a multitude of voices that explore cultural shifts of the past 50 years and touch on topics that include the 1980s AIDS crisis and post-colonial theory.

Focused on photography but spanning a variety of other media, DRAG is accompanied by a programme of tours led by drag performers.

Catch this fantastic ‘free’ exhibition until 14th October 2018.

Newport Street, Lambeth, London SE11 6AJ

See this innovative and in some cases risqué collection of art pieces from three very creative and provocative artists, who have all embraced the beauty of colour throughout their work.

From explicit sexual scenes expressed in vivid primary colours, dreamy pop collages depicting a love of music to oversized canvases using colour to evoke an array of moods, if colour is what you like, then colour is what you will get and all beautifully expressed.

This free exhibition will remain at Newport Street Gallery until 9th September 2018.

It’sOpen Air Theatre at Regent's Park season again and we love it! In fact we can’t get enough of it, especially now we are part of the 2018 on-going heatwave, it’s just perfect!

Every year the theatre offers a brand new selection of top notch shows, some old and some new, covering classic drama, serious theatre, comedy, music and there’s even the odd film or two on show running from May to September.

For this fabulous production of Shakespeare’s classic comedy, it’s set in modern times, with an excellent stage set (pond and all) excellent cast and original music score composed by former Noah and the Whale frontman, Charlie Fink, making it an all-round excellent production.

Olivia Vinall and Edward Hogg star in the leading roles of Rosalind and Orlando, accompanied by a stour supporting cast all contributing to an excellent production of this classic Shakespeare show.

Please note this production finishes on 28th July 2018 but please check the Regents Park Open Air Theatre for their other productions or where this production may appear elsewhere.

Highly recommended
