A couple of good things from the Ikon. Firstly, every Wednesday over the summer the gallery and bookshop will be open until 8pm (cafe until 11pm).
Coinciding with the late openings is a series of talks called ‘These are a few of my favourite things’ which will be
loosely based on Desert Island Discs where speakers will present their eight most memorable artistic experiences illustrated by a slide show
The schedule for those is:
- 4 June – David Bintley, Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet
- 18 June – Sadie Plant, writer
- 25 June – Ian Francis, 7 Inch Cinema
- 9 July – Catherine O’Flynn, author
The talks start at 6.30pm and places are free, although they need to be booked in advance on 0121 248 0708.
