Kitchen Experiment 01: Eat the World
Chef-turned-food-event-magician Anna Hansen’s pop-up kitchen will welcome 50 guests to this, the first night of a three-week season, where there’ll be performances, digital installations and debate themed around topics such as the ‘re-meditative capacities of nature’.
The London Contemporary Orchestra will be the first week’s guest, sound artist David Coulter the second’s and cellist Gregor Ridell the third’s.
So grab yourself a canapé and a beverage and get stuck in, to both the incredible food and thought provocation.

Man 1, Bank 0
You know those cheques you get through the post saying ‘You have won blah blah blah amounts of money’?
American Patrick Combs deposited one in the bank as a joke and to his shock, the US$95,093.35 paper cleared.
This is his story, told in his own words, about how one man inadvertently took on the credit crunch and won.

Part game, part stage show, part club night – Rebel Bingo is a far cry from staid, blue-rinsed old timers.
With tunes, potty-mouthed calling and head-turning performances, it’s gone from a church basement to its Shoreditch home and festivals all over Europe, so get down and see what the fuss is all about.

A Thousand Miles of History
This new play, at the former factory-turned-creative-arts-space The Bussey Building, is about artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who graduated from the street to fine art.
His life intertwined with friends Keith Haring and Andy Warhol is also explored.
Michael Walters is Basquiat, Simon Ginty is activist Haring while funnyman Adam Riches portrays the bleached demi-god of modern art Warhol in this musical production that is truly modern itself.

The Huguenot Legacy
The Huguenots were French religious refugees who came to these isles in the 16th and 17th centuries.
This exhibition looks at their influence on British culture, with particular reference to the fundamentals of banking that they brought with them, hence the City-based location of this show at the Bank of England Museum.

The nutty Canadian stand-up is back in London for two final shows of his impossibly great solo tour (to be recorded for a DVD). He’s a great storyteller, with bags of anecdotes.
Most of all, Campbell’s blessed with a love for the world and its people that will leave you basking in a big, warm, fuzzy glow.
