Bold Tendencies Live Programme
14 May — 18 September 2021
The rooftop spaces of Peckham’s multi-storey car park
London is not short of live events this summer but the Bold Tendencies Live Programme offers fabulous fun for everyone. Taking place in the covered spaces of Peckham’s multi-storey car park, it showcases a rich mix of music, dance and opera. Upcoming highlights include Jess Gillam and her ensemble of seven musicians, a talk by the artist and writer James Bridle, and a semi-improvised piece performed by The Multi-Story Orchestra.
While you’re there, make sure to check out Bold Tendencies’ site-specific arts projects, including Rebecca Ackroyd’s eye-catching sundial, cast in the form of a pair of legs strapped in knee-high Go-go boots and eleven frog heads. Another star exhibit is Jesse Pollock’s The Granary (2021), a life-sized sculpture of a traditional English grain store.
For a pre- or post-event tipple, head to Frank’s Cafe, a rooftop hotspot serving classic cocktails, draught beers and an extensive list of delicious wines. If you’re peckish, order small plates from the Concert Bar menu. There are brunch, lunch and dinner menus too. There’s no better place to while away sun-drenched summer weekends.
