Soul legends The Brand New Heavies are back with a 30th Anniversary Funk EP & a live stream gig on 3rd July 2020

Jun 18 2020

Time really flies … Can it really be thirty years since multi-platinum UK soul legends The Brand New Heavies’ debut album first strutted its way into the public eye with a romantic’s heart, a hedonist’s spirit and a Superfly sensibility? May 1990 The Brand New Heavies released ‘that blue album’ and with it came a winning formula which would go on to earn them 16 top 40 hits and three million worldwide album sales not to mention two UK Platinum albums. Emerging at the heart of the Acid Jazz scene, their self-titled 1990 debut made an instant impact with audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and over the last three decades the band have not let up releasing enduring classics such as You Are The Universe, Midnight At The Oasis & Dream Come True to name but a few.

Art exhibition review: Andy Warhol at Tate Modern 12 March – 6 September 2020

Mar 10 2020

Andy Warhol (1928–87) was one of the most recognisable artists of the late 20th century, yet his life and work continue to fascinate and be interpreted anew. A major new exhibition at Tate Modern – the first at the gallery for almost 20 years – offers a rare personal insight into how American icon Warhol and his work marked a period of cultural transformation. I walked away from a special press view feeling so inspired in my creative work as well as in my personal sphere! Extraordinary! An inspiring exhibition to take children to over the Easter school holidays. Don’t miss it when it opens on 12 March (open until 6 September).

Tate Modern turns 20

Mar 09 2020

It seems yesterday that I arrived to London in my 20s and saw the old power station being turned into a beautiful museum of contemporary arts where I saw really exciting exhibitions and retrospectives. On Monday 11 May 2020, Tate Modern will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its opening. The day will feature a dedicated programme of displays and performances across the museum – including the return of Louise Bourgeois’ iconic giant spider – as well as the opening of a special exhibition dedicated to the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Mark your diary and take the kids to celebrate this milestone!
