DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND, AND AFTER PLAYING SOLD-OUT SHOWS TO OVER 75,000 FANS GLOBALLY IN 2017, POP ICON

ADAM ANT BRINGS HIS PHENOMENALLY-SUCCESSFUL ANTHEMS-THE SINGLES TOUR TO LONDON’S ROUNDHOUSE FOR ONE FINAL SHOW ON 21ST DECEMBER

Tickets go on sale on Friday 21st July at 10 am

(LONDON) 19th July, 2017 – Due to overwhelming demand, and after playing sold-out shows to over 75,000 fans around the world throughout the UK, North America, Australia and New Zealand, pop icon Adam Ant has saved the best for last by capping the year with one final homecoming performance of his phenomenally-successful ANTHEMS – The Singles tour at The Roundhouse in London on Thursday 21st December.  Tickets will be available from The Roundhouse, www.BookingsDirect.com, 24hr Ticket Hotline at 0844 249 2222 and select authorised ticket agents.

Adam will play his classic chart-topping singles as well as rare singles, B sides and personal favourites.

From his early days in London as an underground, post-punk artist with a cult-like following to his explosion on the world stage that would lead him to become one of the most iconic artists of the 80s, Adam’s musical career spans the course of nine albums and 25 chart-topping singles around the world.

Adam has sold more than 40,000,000 albums and had eight singles in the Top 40 in one week, globally.  His debut album, ‘Dirk Wears White Sox’, was the first number-one album in the UK on the newly-created UK Independent Albums Chart that debuted in 1980.  His follow-up album ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ catapulted him to the world stage, spent 12 weeks at number one in the UK (being crowned Best Album at the 1982 BRIT Awards), produced three chart-topping singles ‘Dog Eat Dog’, ‘Antmusic’ and ‘Kings of the Wild Frontier’ and featured his trademark Burundi Beat style of Central African drumming, a musical signature that remains to this day.

As Antmania continued to sweep the nation, his third album, ‘Prince Charming’, introduced his landmark single ‘Stand and Deliver’ that topped the UK Singles Chart for five weeks.

His fourth album, ‘Friend or Foe’ with its massive hit ‘Goody Two Shoes’ and follow-up hit ‘Desperate But Not Serious’, turned him into a household name and earned him a GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist in 1982.

With his crack five-piece band behind him featuring two drummers, Adam Ant live is no excursion in nostalgia.  It’s a thrill ride through some of the most dynamic and thunderous pop music ever recorded.

The London School of Russian Language and Literature Jubilee Charity Ball

Press release

The Jubilee Charity Ball of the Eurolog UK Association and The London School of Russian Language and Literature was held on Saturday, 1 July 2017 in the historic and prestigious Draper’s Hall in the City of London. The ball was dedicated to the twentieth anniversary of the first school of its kind in the United Kingdom, and one of the first in the world.


The Palace’s antique rooms, erstwhile meeting places for the most affluent industrialists in the country, provided the setting for a gathering of the Anglo-Russian society, consisting of famous persons, musicians, artists, actors, businessmen and, of course, the School’s teachers and parents. The foyer housed an exhibition of the works of the talented young artist Philip Firsov.

The ball’s invited distinguished guests included: Archbishop Elisey Surozhsky, Deputy Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea Gerard Hargreaves, royal portrait artist Sergey Pavlenko, popular Russian actress Regina Myannik, People’s Artist of Russia Elena Shcherbakova – Artistic Director of the world-famous Igor Moiseyev Ballet group, and others.

Participating in the ball were star performers, worthy of the finest stages in the world: members of the Igor Moiseyev Ballet, solo artist of the “Novaya Opera” in Moscow Evgeniy Kungurov, mime actor Igor Lamba, and tenor from Saint Petersburg Evgeniy Yuzhin, accompanied by his wife, the singer Yulia Snezhina.

The concert was opened by Christopher Arkhill’s Ballet Russe overture, performed by the magnificent British Imperial Orchestra and directed by Doctor Graham Jones. This was followed by a performance by Maria Veretenina, winner of the International Russian Song Festival Grand Prix, who sang Olympia’s Doll’s Aria from the opera by Jacques Offenbach. The first part of the concert was introduced by star host of the Russian Culture TV channel, Evgeniy Kungurov, and the charming singer Yulia Snezhina. Performances included Giuditta’s Aria by Franz Lehár, performed by Irina Tutt, and Musetta’s Aria by Giacomo Puccini, sung by Olga Adamovich, both of whom were accompanied by pianist and tutor Victoria Savelyeva. All three are also winners of the 8th Russian Song Festival in London. Evgeniy Kungurov gave a truly passionate performance of the famous Couplets of the Toreador from the opera Carmen. The first part was concluded by a solemn dedication to the members of the Alexandrov Choir and their Director Valery Khalilov. The Russian tune Farewell to Slavianka, a favourite of the Director and his orchestra, was played in their honour. The audience rose to pay their respects.

This was followed by a meal fit for a king, with a sumptuous menu – foie gras and trout with a crab garnishing. The company Lots4Charity held a “silent auction” during the meal, while guests and performers had their portrait drawn by caricature artist Georgiy Labunin.

In the second part, which was introduced in English by actor and model Tommy Viles, arias by Lehár and Tchaikovsky were performed by tenor Alexander Naumenko. Soprano Maria Veretenina sang Alexander Alyabyev’s The Nightingale in her enchanting voice. She was followed by the passionate deep baritone of Evgeniy Kungurov, who treated the audience to the beautiful Russian song by Boris Fomin Only Once In A Lifetime. Evgeniy Yuzhin and Yulia Snezhina then sang an affectionate duet by Charles Aznavour Eternal Love (the Russian version of the French classic Une Vie d’Amour). Then came solo performances of particularly beautiful Italian songs, Lucio Dalla’s In Memory of Caruso and Tell Me Girls by Rodolfo Falvo, while the “cherry on the cake” was the joyful song Funiculì, funiculà by Luigi Denza. Evgeniy Yuzhin held the entire audience spell-bound! It was as if the English kings, looking down from their portraits, were also enjoying his singing! There’s a reason why Evgeniy is often referred to as “the voice that captures hearts”!

After the meal members of the Igor Moiseyev Ballet group, Evgeniy Chernyshkov, Andrey Artamonov and Alexander Tikhonov performed the explosive Argentinian dance Gaucho, while Anastasia Sorokina and Kiril Kochubey danced a passionate Argentinian tango. “No one dances like the Moiseyev dancers!” – almost all of them are, after all, Distinguished Artists of Russia! Their elegance of movement, harmonious rhythm and artistry were of an extremely high standard. Igor Lamba then performed an amazing pantomime piece The Hunt.

Finally, the time came for the waltz, the crowning moment of the evening! The magnificent Imperial Orchestra once again took their places and, at the wave of Director Graham Jones’s stick, the favourite tunes by Strauss played out. At last, the guests were able to put into practice all that they had learned in their ballroom dance lessons. They were helped along by the marvellous dance master of the Imperial Ball, Stuart Marsden. As the couples whirled and danced, their reflections were caught in the huge mirrors of the old Palace.

A luxurious, richly decorated cake by Mary-Sony Ltd. provided the finishing touches to a magnificent festivity!




The guests departed, taking with them fond memories of this unforgettable evening in their hearts!

The London School of Russian Language and Literature and the Eurolog UK Association would like to thank their distinguished guests, colleagues, volunteers and partners: Helen Bubnova, Anglia Newspaper, Kartina TV, Matryoshka Radio, Rossotrudnichestvo, The Embassy of the Russian Federation, Pushkin House, Profile Russia, Ikon Magazine, Mery-Sony Ltd., Love in Chocolate, and everyone who came to the Jubilee Charity Ball.

A group of 9-11 year old students from Samuel Marsden Collegiate School in New Zealand were awarded first place in the Primary School category for their installation Matariki–Maori New Year.

The overall winner is the group of students from New Zealand, who were awarded an additional £2,000 and collected a further £10,000 for their school.

The panel of judges this year includes Alice Anderson, Artist; Alistair Hicks, Writer and Curator; Dea Vanagan, Director, Hauser & Wirth Somerset; Megan Piper, Gallerist and Founder of The Line and Nigel Hurst, CEO of the Saatchi Gallery.
“Participating as a judge for the Saatchi Gallery Art Prize for Schools was a privilege- to witness the creativity and openness of young students from around the world, some as young as four years old. Its overriding worth is the opportunity for children to share in a creative experience with their peers and create connections from such an early stage in their artistic development. It’s encouraging that so many worked in collaboration, and I’m pleased to be part of a Prize that helps direct much needed awareness and funds towards supporting creative education around the world, especially as education budgets are ever more stretched”.
Dea Vanagan, Director, Hauser & Wirth Somerset.
The Saatchi Gallery has a 30-year-long history of supporting emerging artists and bringing contemporary art to the widest possible audience. Saatchi Gallery Art Prize for Schools aims to support and encourage budding young artists by providing them with a platform to showcase their work, and give them the confidence to continue studying art and to consider a creative career.
Alongside the Prize, the Saatchi Gallery offers tailored artist-led workshops to pupils from schools where the need is greatest. The workshops increase pupils’ understanding of fine art processes and provide the opportunity to work with specialist art materials, helping pupils to explore and realise their creative potential. Artist-led Continued Professional Development (CPD) workshops are also offered to art teachers from these schools. The workshops aim to support art teachers who are working with limited resources by providing space, time, solutions and ideas to approaching art making, and ultimately serve to open up the Schools Prize to students from all educational backgrounds.

ECSTATIC RAYS

 

PRINTS & ORIGINALS GALLERY

ECSTATIC RAYS

  25 JULY – 28 AUGUST 2017

London, UK – On 25 July the Saatchi Gallery will open Ecstatic Rays in the Prints & Originals Gallery. The exhibition showcases works by nine exciting and emerging contemporary artists.

Mildred Palmer creates unique relief prints that have a textural intensity and sublime resonance. The result of a multi-layered printing technique that involves stencils and serendipity the artist produces works of intoxicating colour & depth.

Andrew Millar produces works on polaroid prints that mix fantasy and reality. In a multi-step process the collages are created, photographed, printed utilising bespoke techniques and finally hand-finished with gold-leaf, paint or mark-making. The paintings of Tom Shedden convey an intensity that suggests the artist has worked and re-worked the pieces repeatedly. The results are works of simplicity that have a powerful impact.

Pakal produces glorious technicolour confections that combine East Asian & South American influences with elements of Western kitsch. The results are beguiling. Zabou is an emerging street artist with a growing reputation for strong studio work too. For this exhibition, Zabou has produced a work of homage to Frida Kahlo. Harry Jones often combines photography and sculpture to create installation works. For Ecstatic Rays, the artist presents superb photographs of distressed walls that are beautifully abstract and yet also suggestive of forms, figures or satellite imagery. The works of Olly Fathers are inspired by geometric cityscapes and how we transverse & interact with them. Olly’s paintings are finely balanced compositions that draw the viewer into the landscape depicted.
The artistic duo Elektro Team collaborate remotely from each other, exploring ideas across a continent. Delicate charcoal drawings created by one artist have been collaged or overpainted by the other. SKU produces works reflecting upon contemporary society and the history of the 21st Century to date – a challenging task.

BY: Jordi Casals

Pamela Anderson, or under “Sun”, this true woman!!! Who has always been destined to be “LA SAUVEGARDE” (Fr: One who safeguards)!!! From the beaches of Malibu on TV, to her ground work today! In a very real world! She is working for the protection of humanity & the planet! She is a “Guardian Angel” in every sense of the term, and on every level.
She possesses this divine essence, this positive aura, full of “Grace”, that illuminates and enhances everything that surrounds her. “Her cause is noble and just”. We must work alongside her; her fight is ours! Let us work for a better world, to save the seas and the planet!

 

Pamela Anderson appeared at Casino Barrière Sainte-Maxime just like a fairy; from the moment she stepped out of her car, a modern day carriage, until the moment she made her departure, she brightened up the evening byher Divine Grace, within the sumptuous decor of the Casino Barrière’s private rooms.

The ambiance created by themauve-amethyst-colouredlighting contributed to creatinga first-class atmospherefor the evening, brilliantly orchestrated bythe premises’ dynamic Manager, Mr. Olivier Bader.

The Pamela Anderson Foundation, a champion for the causes of animal and environmental rights, and the Casino Barrière- in its commitment to sustainable development, and its supportofl’observatoire des fondsmarins du Golf de Saint Tropez (Fr: the seabed observatory for the Gulf of Saint Tropez)-were brought together for this gala evening with the common objective of “Protecting the seabed”.

The hearty and sophisticated dinner, specially prepared by “Le Chef du Majestic à Cannes” (Fr: the Chef of Hotel Barrière Le Majestic, Cannes), was entirely vegetarian in tribute to Pamela Anderson. The 70 sponsors who participated in this veryintimate evening, enjoyed an event which was bothintense and magical, aided by the coming-together of a team of professionals, including those from the restaurant, the host “Bruno Robles”, and the director “Olivier Bader “. The “Pamela Anderson Foundation” dinner gala held on March 11th, a full moon day, will be forever etched in the history of SAINTE MAXIME!!!

AW17 sees the launch of Denim Dallas, the second collaboration between Joshua Fenu and celebrity stylist and fashionista Kyle DeVolle.
The capsule collection consists of five styles; thigh-high boots, ankle boots and a unisex sneaker. Drawing inspiration from old westerns and Kyle’s love of Joshua Tree, California, the collection is a modern twist on old classics whilst sticking with JF London’s trademark shapes. Featuring distressed denim embroidered with more denim the pieces are also embellished with metal effect toecaps and heels which further heightens the drama of this already theatrical collection. The designs are in line with JF London aesthetics yet have a DeVolletouch; undoubtedly the IT shoes to wear this coming season.

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

What: Faulty Towers The Dining Experience
Where: Kingsway Hotel in Covent Garden
Who: A live experience of the classic British television show Fawlty Towers
When: See Performance Schedule way below
Why: Because you’ll laugh until your belly aches, plus you’ll have a very enjoyable meal! 
Fawlty Towers was a hit British television show that ran for only two season, in 1975 and 1979, yet to this day it’s still talked about because of it’s extreme physical comedy that the characters did as part of their roles. The show centered on characters in a fictional hotel in the seaside town of Torquay. First off there is owner Basil Fawlty – a true Englishman – and his wife Sybil, who orders him around but she’s the one who wears the pants in the relationship. And then there is Manuel – a short in stature Spanish waiter who practically speaks no English and gets the instructions from Basil all wrong. If you want to experience the television show live then the Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is for you.
Me and a friend went recently on a Sunday and it was hilarious! Taking place in the dining room at Kingsway Hotel in Covent Garden, the Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is interactive and immersive theatre at it’s best. Of course there is a meal that’s included in the experience, but it’s all about the show that is unravelling (and falling apart) right before your very eyes as you’re tucking into your leek and potato soup – that is if Manuel hasn’t taken it from you.
The show starts immediately when Basil (played by Benedict Holme) tells Manuel (Anthony Clegg as an exact replica to the Manuel played by Andrew Sachs) to take the glasses away, of course Manuel takes people’s glasses off their faces and not the drink glasses! Then Basil tells Manuel to pass out the peanuts, so Manuel literally passes out the peanuts. It’s one thing after another, and once you sit down in the Faulty restaurant it’s only a matter of time until Manual interferes with you – he turns your napkin into a bib, tosses rolls around the room, does somersaults, and spends the entire time misunderstanding and misinterpreting everything Basils says. Lucky for us it’s Sybil (Suzanna Hughes) who manages, a bit, to keep the entire dinner from melting into complete chaos! It’s very physical comedy, but it’s also physical for the attendee because you’re laughing very hard and out loud too! It was the unlucky few who found set of teeth in their soup – gags like this that make the whole thing hilariously fun and funny! No person is spared, and god forbid if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary – you will get a special gift from Sybil – and boy is it special!  It’s an experience that you will not forget – just don’t mention the war!!! 
It was a treat to be transported back to the 1970’s with being part of Faulty Towers The Dining Experience. The trepidation that you might be picked on was real and you almost expect the soup to end up on your lap? Sybil was so like the television character down to the scary laugh, while Manuel was brilliant and made the whole show so very reminiscent of the television snow. What a great way to spend a two and a half hours – to be part of this experience makes me want to watch the television series now.

If you have any questions on the show, there is a Frequently Asked Questions on the first page.
The London shows, held in the Torquay Suite Theatre at the Kingsway Hall Hotel in Covent Garden, are held throughout  the year, while there is also a version that tours the UK as well as Australia and the rest of the world. Yes, this is how popular this show is – continuously playing much to the delight of the television show’s fans – it’s the world’s most successful comedy dining show of it’s kind and now it’s time for you to experience yourself too! It’s a live experience by the Fawlty’s that’s very faulty!
