Fri 6 – Sun 8 April
The Man on the Moor, Old Town Hall, Hemel, Sat 7 April
This sounds great. It’s a monologue, written and performed by Max Dickins, that looks at how people come to disappear and the impact on those they leave behind. On 12 December 2015, an elderly looking gentleman was found dead on Saddleworth Moor. He was carrying no form of identification. Train tickets in his pockets showed he’d travelled 200 miles, apparently just to die. Despite a national campaign he remained unidentified.
Hope to Nope, Design Museum – until 12 August
This is a brand new exhibition and I’m really looking forward to seeing it. Discover how graphic design and technology have played a pivotal role in dictating and reacting to the major political moments of our times.
Out of the Block: Henry Moore’s Carvings, Henry Moore Studios & Garden – until October
Happy days. One of my favourite places in Herts opens again for Easter and the summer season. There’s a wonderful new exhibition celebrating Moore’s carvings but you’ve also got wonderful gardens, sculptures galore, spring lambs running around bronzes, a fab new cafe, and you can also visit Henry Moore’s house. An inspiring day out for all.
