we plan to…
…visit Holyroodhouse to see the exhibition of Northern Renaissance: Dürer to Holbein. Over 100 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, miniatures and manuscripts have been gathered together from The Royal Collection – including works by Dürer, Massays, Memling, Cranach the Elder and Holbein the Younger – to give a great insight into Northern Europe’s 15th and 16th revolution in art, scholarship and religion.
…stand in St Pancras Station and listen intently through headphones to the lives and worlds of the people who swell around us. A new sound installation by poet and novelist Lavinia Greenlaw, Audio Obscura brings to life the private thoughts, feelings, confessions of the people who inhabit a very public space.
…wait patiently for Tom Waits’ new album, Bad As Me, out on 25th October…!
