Constructing Spaces

To mark the centenary of the birth of W. S. Graham, Southbank Centre's National Poetry Library presents a new exhibition exploring the impact of this major Twentieth Century poet and the idea of space on the creative mind. Graham, who asked in one of his poems, 'What is the language using us for?', was prescient in writing about the extent to which communications would dominate our lives. Alongside manuscript copies of his poems, the exhibition will include Graham's original writing desk which he named his 'Untidy Dreadful Table' and his library as part of a reconstruction of Graham's writing space in the National Poetry Library. Graham's poems and archive allow the viewer to reflect on what makes a space 'creative', and how these spaces shape our creativity; visitors are encouraged to interact creatively with the materials on display, produce their own contributions and participate in constructing this space.

Exploring 300 years of history between Russia and Britain, Russia: Royalty and the Romanovs shows works of art in the Royal Collection related to the two royal families. The Queen's Gallery exhibition features paintings and personal gifts from the time Peter the Great, the first Russian ruler to set foot on English soil, visited in 1698 up to modern times.

Feliks Topolski: Drawing Debden

An absorbing collection of works by acclaimed expressionist artist Feliks Topolski (1907-1989) will be seen by the public for the first time when a new, free exhibition opens at the Bank of England Museum in October. Feliks Topolski: Drawing Debden will feature works from a set of 27 drawings and paintings by Topolski, commissioned by the Bank of England in 1957 to mark the opening of its Printing Works in Debden, Essex, at the end of the Central Line. The exhibition runs at the Bank of England Museum in Threadneedle Street at the heart of the City of London. The opening of the new Debden printing works in 1956 signalled a great leap forward for the Bank of England and one which it wished to commemorate. The following year, the Bank of England commissioned Topolski to create an illustrated record of the building, its staff and the intricate process that saw paper enter the east end of the building and emerge from the west side as finished banknotes.

Magic Mike Live

Picking up from where Dirty Dancing left off, Channing Tatum presents an adults-only dance and acrobatic spectacular based on the smash hit films Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. If you saw Channing's appearance on the Graham Norton show - including an intimate dance with the Irish chat show presenter himself - you'll know what to expect. And it seems plenty of people are prepared to pay a pretty penny to see some steamy dancing as tickets have sold so well - with sales already exceeding £4 million - that they've added a new booking period before the show even started. Performed on a 360 degree stage to bring the audience close to the performers, the show uses strobe lighting and theatrical smoke to raunchy effect.
