Book this: Festival No6 at TATE

Fancy zipping down to London for a little cultural soiree next month do we? If so, here’s an idea from Catherine, the immensely funky (*sniff)  and very switched on editor of the brand new Muddy Warwickshire. North Wales’ fab award-winning Festival No 6 at TATE is going south-side for an afterhours collaboration with TATE Britain at the David Hockney Retrospective (the gallery’s fastest selling exhibition ever fyi). Here’s what you need to know.

You’ll need to act quick if you’d like to partake in a one-off evening of art, musical collaborations, poetry, food and drink organised by Festival No 6 at TATE  during the David Hockney retrospective, as tickets are limited.

The line-up includes: Stockport indie rockers Blossoms with Joe Duddell and the No.6 ensemble, Charlotte Church’s Love Bomb, punk poet Dr John Cooper Clarke, comedian Sara Pascoe, DJ Greg Wilson and pop-up theatre/ performances from Spark! drummers and Kitsch & Sync. It’s hosted by Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens and ends at 1am.

Drinks and food experiences will be themed by the Yorkshire artist’s life: either a 2-course dinner Yorkshire rare breed meats matched with Californian wines or a Californian Wine Tasting. Tickets include afterhours access to Paul Nash and the Hockney Exhibition, 7.30 – 11.55pm. More than 20,000 tickets have already sold for the show, which opens on Thursday Feb 9 and is the fastest selling in Tate’s history.

The relatively young Festival No 6 is normally held in the beautifully surreal Italianate village of Portmeirion on the North Wales coast in September (7-10 in 2017).
