Mon 14th March: "You, Me, Bum Bum Train" Poster exhibition
"You Me Bum Bum Train" is the interactive performance where you are guided thought a labyrinth of experiences to encounter a myriad of unexpected characters in surreal scenarios. It all began as a party with 3 wheelchairs and collectively silly sense of humour, steadily escalating to a series of complex sets installed in nightclubs. For each of these plotted out parties were hand painted and reproduced posters and fliers depicting the particular theme. The team behind the bonkers business both studied illustration at Brighton University so were a dab hand at drawing out their ghost rides in gouache. The whole collection of original artwork is now on display in The Drawers Gallery situated in the basement of the Haggerston Pub, 438 Kingsland Rd, Dalston, E8 4AA. It's open 2pm till 9pm every day except Mondays throughout the month, ending on the 28th. According to official sources "If you would like to come during the day the pub is really nice and it does amazing pizzas for all you pizza fans." !
