BLOOMBERG SUMMER AT THE ROUNDHOUSE
RUSSELL BRAND & MR. GEE JOIN THE LINE-UP OF LIVE EVENTS AT UTOPIA
The Roundhouse has today announced that Russell Brand is to present a one-off evening event on Wednesday 5 August at their major new installation Utopia, created by Penny Woolcock with designs by Block9. Comedian, actor and author, Brand will be joined by poet Mr. Gee and other special guests to respond to the themes and provocations of Woolcock’s piece from the housing crisis, gentrification, the distribution of wealth to the widening gap of inequality. This live event accompanies the series of ‘Live Lates’ which celebrate and elaborate on the themes of the installation in the Main Space from August 4 – 23. The full line-up of events can be seen here, for all other events in the series the installation will remain open simultaneously.
Alongside the installation, the Roundhouse will become a daily destination where members of the public can enjoy the sunshine at North London’s very own ‘seaside’ resort, Camden Beach, presented by Stoli Vodka. On the terrace, Camden’s biggest outdoor space, there will be 150 tonnes of the finest sand, deckchairs, beach huts, ping-pong, live music, some of the best food pop-ups in the city and the chance to enjoy Stoli’s drink of the summer, the Stoli Lemonade.
