I haven’t seen it because they don’t let in dogs, but my manager assures me that this exhibition is well worth the trip to the Barbican. Only three more weekends to catch it!

Battersea Power Station open day

I’ve just found out that Battersea Power Station is going to be open to the public this Saturday (12th July) and next (19th July). I’m gutted I’m going to miss it, but it sounds like a bit of a unique opportunity – you get to go into the turbine hall and everything, as well as view the planned development for the site.

For more info see the Battersea Power Station site and click on the  “Consultation” page.
