Alongside the exhibition we’ll be running a series of themed talks and events as well as our regular creative workshops suitable for beginners and more experienced alike.

Talking to Strangers with Laurie Bolger

Postponed Until Further Notice

Friday 27 March : food and drink from 6.45pm, performance 7.30pm.

Tickets £12 including pie and a pint (or wine or soft drink option)
£8 performance only.

Stand up poet and London Laureate Laurie Bolger brings you stories and chats about comfort food, supermarket meltdowns, tea and pub love. Her warm and witty poems ask the big questions : how does that annoying passenger on the bus turn out to be the stranger that saves the day?
Sometimes when life is lonely, strangers give us the answers we need...
'If I could jump into Laurie's poems I would. I imagine it'd be lovely and warm in there.' Holly McNish
