Launch of Social Bingo Academy on Saturday 27 January 2018

It’s obvious to anyone who’s played it that bingo is a phenomenal game. But, strangely, many young people still don’t see bingo as their number one pastime. The most likely reason for this is that young people in Britain today are ashamed that they lack the basic skills necessary to survive in the challenging world of modern bingo.

Traditional bingo halls can be intimidating places. Skill levels are high. Novice players who aren’t familiar with the complex rules often feel intimidated. The mission of the Social Bingo Academy is to equip a new generation of players with the skills to compete not just in traditional bingo environments but also all the “new-wave” bingo experiences popping up across the country. Bingo is changing. Don’t get left behind.

At the Social Bingo Academy you will be taught the rules, help you master advanced dabbing techniques, and show you how to win prizes in an enthusiastic but humble manner – all in a friendly, relaxed and social setting. If you enjoy drinking drinks, eating food, developing key life skills, and playing enjoyable games, then the Social Bingo Academy is the place for you!!!

Once mastered, there are few games that can match bingo for the deep sense of personal fulfilment and strong social bonds it brings. But developing the skills to participate in a meaningful way is the first hurdle.

The Social Bingo Academy will launch in a fully equipped, 750-seater bingo hall in Camden Town on 27th January 2018.

There is a full bar in the venue and food will be available in the form of lucious hotdogs from Popdogs.

A voyage of discovery of one of the all-time great symphonies, Beethoven’s era-defining Eroica. Forged as a powerful expression of the human and spiritual ideals he held close to his heart, Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony tells the story of the hero and his journey towards fulfillment.

Enter the transformed world of a heroically inspired Oval Space where you’ll greeted by the friendly team. Unwind from the stresses of your week; catch up with friends, enjoy a drink from the bar (including a delicious Eroica-inspired cocktail) and a bite to eat on the terrace; explore the space before getting comfortable for the concert, with drink in hand.

In an intimate and beautiful setting, on a comfy sofa if you feel like treating yourself and a friend, this is a wonderful opportunity to get close to the full sound of Beethoven’s orchestra and experience the struggle, anguish, and triumph of his epic portrayal of heroism through music. Nicholas, the conductor, will set the scene with his friendly introductions, sharing some of the stories and ideas behind the music.

After the final resounding chord of the symphony has died away, the bar reopens and the evening becomes social – a little party you are warmly invited to… To help set the mood, there will be some suitably cool live jazz, which we will be announcing nearer the time. Enjoy the atmosphere, relax with friends and meet the young, talented musicians who play in the orchestra, as well as Nicholas and the team.

Explore the world of comics through original artwork by 100 women comic creators working across genres and generations – from the 1800s to the present day; from observational comedy to surreal fantasy, challenging biography to subversive dissent.

Featuring artists from Marie Duval and Tove Jansson to Posy Simmonds, Audrey Niffenegger and Nina Bunjevac, Comix Creatrix: 100 Women Making Comics is the UK’s largest ever exhibition of leading female comic artists.

From their early incarnations as sequential satires and newspaper strips to today’s countercultural zines, webcomics and award-winning graphic novels, comics have evolved into a complex and powerful literary form. Women have been present throughout this evolution, creating some of the most defining and provocative works of the medium.

Comix Creatrix presents the work of 100 innovative creators and debunks the myth that women have a limited stake in the world of comics. Highlighting 21st century work by British creators, the exhibition also recognises ground-breaking works from the 19th and 20th centuries, and will highlight the influence of international practitioners on the British scene.

On display is original artwork from graphic novels, comics and zines – many seen in public for the first time. It will feature work from acclaimed titles such as Nina Bunjevac’s Fatherland and Isabel Greenberg’s Encyclopedia of Early Earth as well as self-published sensations like Nadine Redlich’s Ambient Comics and many more.

The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop @ Tate Modern / until 24th January 2016

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: £14.50 book online

@ Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG

www.tate.org.uk

Whaaam! Pop! Kapow! This is pop art, but not as you know it.

Tate Modern is ready to tell a global story of pop art, breaking new ground along the way, and revealing a different side to the artistic and cultural phenomenon.

From Latin America to Asia, and from Europe to the Middle East, this explosive exhibition connects the dots between art produced around the world during the 1960s and 1970s, showing how different cultures and countries responded to the movement.

Politics, the body, domestic revolution, consumption, public protest, and folk – all will be explored and laid bare in eye-popping Technicolor and across many media, from canvas to car bonnets and pinball machines.

The exhibition will reveal how pop was never just a celebration of western consumer culture, but was often a subversive international language of protest – a language that is more relevant today than ever.
