Symphony Hall. 5th Apr.

Watch the award-winning 2014 film on a giant HD screen, accompanied by the London Concert Orchestra playing Nick Urata's calypso-infused score live!

Based on Michael Bond's much-loved books, cherished by families since 1958, the charming story follows the misadventures of a young bear from Peru who travels to London in search of a home.
Taken in by the Brown family, who finds him lost and alone in Paddington Station, things are looking up for this rarest of bears. Until that is, he catches the eye of an ambitious museum taxidermist...


Exodus Crooks: Epiphany (Temporaire).

Exodus Crooks: Epiphany (Temporaire).

Ikon Gallery. Until 21st Apr.

Ikon hosts Midlands-based artist Exodus Crooks' exhibition Epiphany (Temporaire), which includes film, text and sculptural installation.

Exodus Crooks is a British-Jamaican multidisciplinary artist, educator and writer whose art practice centres on the relationship with self. Observing the results of fractious domesticity, despair and passion, their art tends to appear as questions of self-actualisation and the role that religion and spirituality play in that journey to enlightenment.
