Night Out - Chosen by Carly
Madame Zingara's Theatre of Dreams

Spiegeltent by Battersea Power Station
Golden Circle - £85
Private Booths - £75

Looks like a really fun and interesting evening out, although
because a four course dinner is included, it's very expensive! Not one for the students, but it's nice to 'dream'...

Exhibition - Chosen by Alison
Henry VIII's Wives
Pump House Gallery
28 January 2009 - 15 March 2009
Henry VIII's Wives (The Wives) are a collective of artists founded in
1997, and include Rachel Dagnall, Bob Grieve, Sirko Knupfer, Simon
Polli, Per Sander and Lucy Skaer. For their first exhibition in a
London gallery they will present two time-based installations; Mr
Hysteria, 2005 and The Returning Officer, 2007. Although both projects
are very different in approach Mr Hysteria informed and inspired the
development of The Returning Officer, paving the way to an
experimental use of narrative.
You can hear the artists in conversation on 27th 5.30-6.30pm
