Check out the latest must-see events in London this week!

 

 Bob Mazzer- Underground

What to expect: Curious and intimate images of London life

The Howard Griffin Gallery presents a unique collection of iconic images by photographer Bob Mazzer. Mazzer takes us on a journey back in time to the 1980’s, capturing snap shots of late night commuters’ on the London underground.

These wonderfully candid images of Londoners encapsulate the essence of 80’s punk, an unforgettable time in history when pink hair was in fashion, Dr Martins were a necessity and smoking on the tube was allowed. This intimate portrait of London’s underground and its punk passengers is certainly not to be missed.

The exhibition continues until July 13th at the Howard Griffen Gallery. Admission is free, for further information please click here.

 

 Sexuality Lates

What to expect: A night of naughtiness

This week the Science Museum hosts an adult only night of unadulterated frivolity and fun! From sex toys to transgender surgery, the museum is getting ready to educate us in the science of sex.
