Meet Road Gals LDN, the collective behind 'PIRATES LIVE'

Road Gals LDN is making waves in the arts scene with their strong ethos of celebrating road gal culture, UK music and focusing on promoting and amplifying women’s voices.

On Road Gal Culture:

IN THE GALLERY: NOT.BANKSY

The Artist behind our recognisable imagery for TAKEOVER festival, Ellis Lewis-Dragstra, has curated an exhibition of artists whom have not necessarily exhibited before. Taking to Instagram to find undiscovered young artists, he has pulled together an honest, fresh and unpretentious exhibition that really focuses on the most important thing - the artists behind the work - in a no frills kind of way. The exhibition is free and available to visit throughout the duration of TAKEOVER festival in the Lower Café Gallery.

Our First Memories of Disney

Live-action Beauty and the Beast - Coming to Rich Mix 17 March!

'Disney' – that name has evolved to mean many things since it’s inception with the silent 'Alice' comedies and 'Oswald the Lucky Rabbit' in 1923. In the following years, their pioneering artwork and animation style set them apart. Fast forward to 1937, and with 'Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs', Disney cemented their place as an iconic feature-fillm studio.
