a horribly rainy evening, but i made it to the ‘poptastic music in the 80’s’ talk at the bishopsgate institute last night that Robert was chairing. it was an interesting and lively debate with Pauline Black and Gary Kemp discussing their thoughts and beliefs now and back in the 1980’s. look out for more events at the institute. after all these years, i had never noticed the building, but its a beautiful victorian building, intact with its gorgeous green original tiles. there is also an amazing array of courses on offer there too, including art appreciation.
