Fashion designer, musician and all-round auteur Danny Passarella turns his senses to art in his out-of-this-world debut exhibition.

The ‘Fantasy Scenes’ in question are ten pieces of wholly original art photography. Their backgrounds feature Danny’s home town of Whitley Bay in the north-east of England, while the subjects themselves are retro arcade machines from the industry’s salad days.

The sci-fi-esque images evoke the wonder of adolescence, and call to mind the importance of visionary thinking to a civilised society.

‘They think I am the most beautiful thing in the world. And I don’t mind being a thing. I don’t want their respect. I want only their animal desire’.

Georgie is 30 with dirty secrets. She drinks in her bedroom and hides from the sun. Leah is 15 with teenage dreams. She practices her cum face and Veets. A lot. All-meat, all-sex, all-vulnerable, all-powerful. There’s a first time for everything… Isn’t there? A punchy and provocative new play by Bruntwood Prize winner Anna Jordan.

‘Incredibly vivid and really upsetting, but in a brilliant way’ (Marianne Elliot on award-winning YEN).

A night of rock and roll and sinning and with food and drinks.

Yelp, the largest local review website in the world, is throwing a two-night Red and White Bash to celebrate everything local in London.

Which one are you. Saint or Sinner?

Represent the side of your choice at Yelp’s 10th Birthday Party celebrations. Find your inner elegance and dress to impress, all in white, for their beautiful ballroom bash. Or indulge your devilish side and prepare to rock out, all in red, at their underground concert.

The first, an elegant night in white in the lovely ballroom of the Radisson Blu Portman Hotel. Followed by, a grittier rock and roll evening in red at Under The Bridge, the multi-million pound music venue built into Chelsea Stadium.

Visit Yelp’s website for more information about both events.
