MARIANNE SPRINGHAM
Methodist Church
Sun 6 May, 1.30pm - 5pm; Mon 7 May 10am - 5pm
Marianne is hugely influenced by the weird and wonderful work of ‘Outsider artists’, and this installation is built around the stories of Victorian taxidermist Walter Potter, writer and painter Henry Darger and the painter Frida Kahlo and her own ideas about what it means to be an artist/ maker.

A Special Event: A PARLOUR CONCERT WITH MISTER KEITH
Saltaire Canteen
Sat 5 May, 7.30pm
A splendid evening of quirky, expertly crafted songs – think Ray Davies, Squeeze – stories and humour by the self-professed originator of ‘Victorian Pop’. A parlour concert with Mister Keith harks back to the days of singing around the piano combined with the eccentricity of Victorian music halls. Let Mister Keith transport you back in time in the heart of Saltaire.
