A Fete Worse than Death /

This weekend is almost upon us (hip hip hurray!) and it’s set to be a scorcher! If you’re stuck for something to do why not stop by the Rivington St for ‘A Fete Worse Than Death‘?

The event marks the 20th anniversary of the first ‘A Fete Worse Than Death’ and celebrates the life and work of ‘Factual Nonsense‘ founder Joshua Compston, a man responsible in part for making Hoxton the vibrant, bustling destination we know and love today.

Mimicking the event Joshua hosted in 1993/94 where Damian Hirst and Angus Fairhurst created the first spin paintings (selling for 50p!), there will be artists manning stalls along Rivington St bringing their art to the public. There will also be an exhibition of ‘Factual Nonsense’ and contemporary art at RED Gallery.
