The Prude Exhibition in St. James’
Anthea Hamilton’s latest exhibition will be ending this weekend at the Thomas Dane Gallery in St. James’. Born in London in 1978, she was one of four shortlisted artists for the 2016 Turner Prize and has had recent solo exhibitions in Vienna, London, New York and Paris. The Prude follows on from her previous exhibition The New Life, and is about how the prude will not permit themselves, or others, sensuous enjoyment in life. Through large sculptures of moths and butterflies, this exhibition challenges relationships of scale and content and the way objects and images might influence meaning when treated to different processes of realisation.
London Wine Week in Bermondsey
Flat Iron Square in Bermondsey will be the one-stop hub for people taking part in London Wine Week. London Wine Week is taking over the sun-drenched garden for five days, where there will be pop-up wine bars from some of the freshest names in wine, street food and DJ’s. This free festival for all things grape-related will also include wine available at special prices such as £6 for a tasting trio and recommended wine pairings for all food available at the feasting tables and inside the Food Arch.

Dido Opera in London Bridge
The English National Opera and the Unicorn Theatre will be joining forces for the very first time this month for the creation of a new version of Purcell’s powerful and emotional masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas, designed for teenagers and adults. Through the eyes only child Belinda, we watch as her mother Dido, a feminist icon and modern parents, begins to fall apart with tragic consequences. This contemporary production will be an incredible first experience for those new to the opera and for others a chance to see a familiar production in a completely new light.
Death Of A Salesman Play in Waterloo
Recently opened at the Young Vic, one of the twentieth century’s greatest plays, Death Of A Salesman, has been brought back to life by award-winning director Marianne Elliot and her associate, Miranda Cromwell. Wendell Pierce, famous for starring in The Wite, Suits and Selma, makes his UK stage debut as William Loman. This version of Death of A Salesman takes on a unique vision interpretation, seen through the eyes of an African American family.
