An artsy-load of ways to spend your day

Another fine example of Angela Ho's creativity
Another fine example of Angela Ho's creativity

ARTIST Angela Ho will be familiar to the Midsummer Place frequenters among you, having just spent two weeks in the shopping hub showing her incredible flair.

But if you missed her at work there is still time to see the results, which are being hosted in the centre courtesy of Fringe MK.

Angela’s style (bottom left) is figurative with ambiguous and occasionally unsettling images which are created using only pencil and graphite...and the detail is incredible.

Originally inspired by the memory of growing up in Hong Kong and the UK, the now London-based artist developed her pieces into a language of childlike honesty, but with connotations of cultural and ethical issues.

You can view Angela’s creativity through to the end of May.

> Festive Road are inviting musicians and performers from across the new city to ‘pour’ forth and get involved in their Brewing Up project – the musical and visual experiment that celebrates the country’s tea drinking obsession.

And we do like a brew or two, don’t we?

Launched last year the project, which is funded by parties including Arts Council UK and MK Council – is inviting interested groups and individuals to attend their taster session on Saturday, between 2 and 4pm.

The event is being held in Aylesbury Street, Wolverton at the URC Hall, found above the MK Christian Foundation premises.
