If you don’t already know about immersive theatre group Punchdrunk or haven’t been able to get tickets to one of their immense sell-out productions, you’re in luck. This Saturday September 22 (12-5pm), they’re bringing a taste of what they’re all about to the Tate Britain for ‘Alternative Perception’ – a day of fun inspired by the ‘Lady of Shallot’ painting hosted by the Tate Collectives. Alongside Punchdrunk getting up to theatrical shenanigans, there’ll be performances from Kate Tempest and Purple Ferdinand, soundscapes from Matthew Herbert with our fave guerilla woolsters Knit The City creating a yarn storm. Move around the gallery, unravel the story and see a new side to the famous painting. The whole thing is free and aimed at 15-25 year olds, but anyone can pop along. Emma Gannon
