We caught Christopher Brett Bailey simply amazing ‘show’ at the Tom Thumb Theatre in Margate. It has returned to the scene of a 2014 sell-out run after a national tour, and is not to be missed. Surreal, relentless, boundary-destroying and provocative – the less specific said the better, so as not to spoil the experience.

They Say: “A two-day maximalist art exhibition called Play, a big warehouse (guarded by a Burning Candy cat) with walls and floors alive with paintings, sculpture, installation and more… Expect painting, installation, sculpture and… well watch this space, all about artists coming together to make things happen.”
