Culture and Art in London

  1.  Love the Horniman museum? Don’t miss their INFRINGE exhibition: a photography project capturing London’s unique and diverse hairstyles. Some are simply… extraordinary.
  2. The Museum of Homelessness has opened a mysterious Secret Museum to share the hidden stories of homelessness from London during the pandemic. To find it you need to sign up: you will then be posted instructions about where in central London to start the experience, before working your way through a trail of clues. 
  3. Check out Messy, the COP Ness Monster made of recycled denim.
  4. Have a look at Anne Roininen’s eerie car park graveyard at the Southbank Centre. Turned into light sculptures, they suddenly acquire a ghost quality…
