What is it?
Fan of Wimbledon? Then head down to The Book Club in London this weekend. Not only will they be screening the tennis games, but they will also be hosting a tiny table tennis tournament aka Thimbledon.
The tournament will take place before the Wimbledon women’s and men’s finals, between 12pm and 2pm. Any one who fancies taking part can sign up on the day and all participants will receive free strawberries and cream. Thimbledon champions on the Saturday and Sunday will also win a £100 bar tab.
The Book Club will also be hosting a free exhibition by London-based artist and print designer Kelly Anna (whose fans include NIKE, Beyonce, Cara Delavingne and Stella McCartney). Kelly Anna will be taking over The Book Club as part of their Summer of Sport season.
Anna will be transforming The Book Club into a new graphic world, using murals and her print making skills to reconstruct the space with limited edition printed curtains, clothing and more.
Anna customised one of The Art of Ping Pong’s mini ArtTables last November and through this initial work they have developed a strong relationship and mutual understanding of the importance between the arts, sport and our health.
She Stole the Show will run from Thursday 12th July to Sunday 4th November 2018.
