Regrann from @ourheartofglass - look out #sthelens πŸ‘€, the artists are taking over. from witty performance pop ups (including operatic treats from our fave lycra clad lovely @legateauchocolat, pictured, πŸ“· elischmidtphoto), international art in an empty shop unit, the dulcet tones of frank cottrell boyce in not one but two of our wonderful libraries, a roster of vintage and contemporary social realist films. oh and and maxine peak. in a social club!! .
loads of free stuff, and affordable tickets for most events now on sale! link in bio. .

this year, we're all about identity, and what the heck that means in a world where the only constant seems to be change. watch this space cos over the coming weeks we'll be asking artists and public to share what #takeoversthelens means to them.
