What’s on this week
Mon 9 - Mon 16 Jul
The Tate’s ARTIST ROOMS: Agnes Martin, The Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre, Thu Jul 5 – 5 Oct
World-class art comes to Winchester. Agnes Martin was one of America’s foremost abstract painters and this exhibition, part of Tate’s highly prestigious ARTIST ROOMS scheme, is definitely worth a visit or five. Apparently, to really appreciate the calming, grounding nature of Martin’s work, you need see it regularly; entirely possible with this three-month-long exhibition.
Hampshire Food Festival, throughout July
Calling all foodies. Launching this Saturday, a month-long celebration of Hampshire’s food and farming community. Expect everything from local produce pop-up dinners with James Durrant to Southampton Cocktail Week via English wine masterclasses with Berry Bros. & Rudd and butchery workshops at Newylns Farm Shop. Drink up. Chow down.
BOOK TICKETS NOW:
WOCKFEST, Whitchurch, Fri Jul 20, 7pm – 1am
Ibiza meets Hampshire for one night only, with headline DJ Dean Oram — fresh from Ministry of Sound, Ibiza and The Black Eyed Peas tour in Dubai — plus vocalist Errol Reid of 90s reggae outfit China Black. WOCKFEST is the brainchild of local chiropractor and thermographer, Elizabeth Bayliss, so help will be on hand if any of us over-enthusiuastic dancers do some damage *phewff*. So grab your glow sticks, daub on the UV paint and go large or go home… a short hop down the road. Amen to that.
