Help stop the destruction of the oldest cycle track in Britain - the 1948 Olympic Cycling Championships venue. The future of this important community facility is looking bleak as the site is under-funded and deteriorating. The venue provides an exceptional resource for cyclists and the local community and its loss would be tragic. We aim to find a way to secure the future of the site and make it a viable long-term facility for all including local residents and schools.

On 27th of May, Vilchez will bring his unique brand of colorful, eye catching wood and lino relief prints to the Pure Evil Gallery in Hoxton.
Preferring the detailing of dry crystal etching and a mix of woodcut and lino cut relief, Vilchez extracts vibrancy, intricacy and the cult of cool from his medium, creating complex, vastly impressive works that twist conventional iconography with influences from urban art.
Coupled with music from the uber talented flamenco duo Fran & Josh (http://www.myspace.com/franandjosh) this one should be a goodun!
From: 27th May – 31st May 2010
At: Pure Evil Gallery
108 Leonard Street

Thanks to Mr. Yacob, the one time silent member of the Cuts family, the show at the star is being touted as 'the last great amateur effort from the over sized brain of Randomcuts'.
Having fallen out with most of his peers, Mr. Yacob has decided to go against his natural formula and try something, in his words 'dark and diggy', creating an atmosphere that would cause dizziness to a normal sized cat, while Randomcuts concentrates on provoking your thoughts through your eyeballs by filling 'The Star' with their truly eclectic collection of soon to be 'professional' artworks and visuals.
Quote from Mr.Yacob,'this ain't Tate Modern babe, this is proper east!'
Star of Bethnal Green,tomorrow night the 15th April.
Music, booze and CMYK hue's this is the art show for you!!!
