Bicycle-powered DJs, mini urban parks and more feature at Embrace the Place at Tate Britain

Posted at 1:00 pm, September 2, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

This Saturday (1-5pm), Embrace the Place – a free event for all ages – takes place in/around Tate Britain. The Tate Local event, produced by home live art in collaboration with Tate Britain, runs in partnership with City West Homes Great Communities Day in the area. Spectators can see a series of interactive ‘mini urban parks’ created in parking bays by various artists, an ‘alternative hanging garden’ by Andrew Kearney and some outlandish man-powered vehicles by Francis Thorburn. Live music comes courtesy of bicycle-powered Magnificent Revolution (responsible for this summer’s hit Cycle-In Cinema), and the award-winning Magpie’s Nest. Turn up and get stuck in.
