London hosts Mutate Britain
If you happen to get a kick out of all things artistic - particularly graffiti and sculptures - and you're staying in a hostel in London at the moment, I suggest you get a wriggle on and head to Acklam Road in Ladbroke Road as Mutate Britain is hosting another of its open-air exhibitions beneath the Westway.

It's taking place between December 4th and 22nd and features all sorts of things that will no doubt keep you amused for quite a long time. The majority of creative tastes seem to be catered for, with street art, mutoid sculptures, poster art, photography, graffiti and - quite interestingly - anarchist crockery. Now, I'm not entirely sure what this last one entails exactly but I'd certainly like to find out, so if you do go please give me a shout and let me know what you've uncovered.

The show is open to the public from between 14:00 GMT and 22:00 GMT on Fridays and from 13:00 GMT on Saturdays. If you're planning to get there on a Sunday then do so any time between 12:00 GMT and 21:00 GMT. Before 18:00 GMT, it'll cost you the princely sum of £2 to gain entry but after that it's hiked up to £3. What's more, the gig is family-friendly so if your kids are begging you to take them to see it, no worries on that front at all.

Apparently, the Mutate Britain collective all began with Joe Rush and the Mutoid Waste Company that makes big sculptures made from rubbish. Alongside Joe are Alex Wreckage and Sam Haggerty, who have all contributed to making things like dinosaurs and helicopters.
