Our favourite Brick Lane drinks and games venue is the gift that keeps giving. They recently upgraded three of their crazy golf courses (nine hole) and now have upgraded bars!

Encounter fighting bear cages, scrapyard slides, creepy clowns, treehouse bars, UV garage section and loads more in the unique space.

Choose to play one of the courses PABLO (Polluted Paradise), BOZO (Circus Freaks), GARY (Scrapyard Challenge) or BRUCE (Old School Movie Mash-Up).

There are four bars, serving banging cocktails, like the Golf Lundgren or Who’s Your Caddy and tasty snacks including hot dogs, nachos and popcorn.

Junkyard Golf Club London may have landed a little less than a year ago but its impact on the city has been huge. The party person’s must-do has welcomed over 200,000 players through the doors, clocking up nearly 250,000 games of twisted, pun-packed crazy golf between them. Celebrity spots at the venue have included Jonathan Ross, Tom Hardy, members of Little Mix and Bastille, Jack Garratt, Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick and more – further evidence that this is the place to be. Not to mention the many many party cocktails coiffed and hotdogs consumed at Junkyard’s home of The Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane.

New courses:

  • Pablo transports players from a treehouse, past a deep-cave-bear-wrestling-cage via a Rihanna themed forest, obviously. Not to mention a stopover at Rio-On-Sea.
  • Bozo is not for the fainthearted given its circus freak inhabitants. Winner takes all in Junkyard’s dark homage to all things carnival. A Ferris wheel, hall of mirrors and some damn scary clowns – time to run away from the circus.
  • Gary is firmly implanted in Junkyard’s roots, a good old-fashioned scrapyard challenge. Tyre loop-the loops, a salvaged slide, Gary’s UV garage rave and more.

These new kids on the block join the previously installed Blockbuster-themed forth course, Bruce. Nine holes of Oscar-winning proportions skew the plots of legendary movies, move through prison cells, crocodile infested territories and Mount Mordor on a quest for glory.

Six upgraded bar areas. Two ‘bunker’ bars, plus four perfectly placed course-side for mid-game refueling, offer up a full selection of drinks, slushies and party cocktails served in big red house-party style cups. The food offering has been given a fairground spin with salted caramel popcorn and pick n’ mix now available alongside hotdogs and nachos.

This major Eduardo Paolozzi retrospective spans five decades and features over 250 works; from the artist’s post-War bronzes, revolutionary screen-prints and collages, to his bold textiles and fashion designs.

Mary Heilmann: Looking at Pictures @ Whitechapel Gallery / 21st August 2016

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: Tue-Sun 11am-6pm

@ Whitechapel Gallery, Galleries 1, 8 & 9, 77-82 Whitechapel High Street, London E1 7QX

Free entry

www.whitechapelgallery.org/exhibitions/mary-heilmann-looking-at-pictures

The surreal beach life of Los Angeles, 1960s counter culture, pop songs and friendships with New York artists, poets and musicians are the well springs of Mary Heilmann’s dazzling abstractions.

Heilmann (b. 1940) takes colour, line and shape on unexpected journeys. Polka dots waft across eye-popping hues corralled within irregular rectangles. The poetry of her works lies in the tension between the rigours of geometry and the contingencies of the human and the organic.

The exhibition begins with paintings based on the square, the grid and architectural details, such as The First Vent (1972). They are juxtaposed with glazed ceramics, hovering between painting and sculpture. A slide show, Her Life (2006), features Heilmann’s paintings and personal photographs set to an eclectic mix of music.

Choreographed across Gallery 8, dynamic canvases represent ‘autobiographical markers’ – painterly haikus of the artist’s life. Their vibrancy is matched by their titles – Bush of Ghosts (1980) or Good Vibrations Diptych, Remembering David (2012). Heilmann invites the viewer to become immersed in her synaesthetic stories while sitting in her colourful chairs.
