Banging the drum for art at Attenborough Arts Centre

The Attenborough Arts Centre is hosting a special event this week to tie in with their current exhibition ‘Means of Production’.

Artist Peter Clayton will be discussing his exhibition from 5.30pm on 21 May, followed by a Leicester Print Workshop Extravaganza and a performance by local band Rattle.

‘Means of Production’ features work developed whilst Clayton has been a studio resident at Leicester Print Workshop (LPW). Clayton has been a member of LPW for 8 years and teaches regularly at Attenborough Arts Centre.

Rattle are a duo operating outside of the traditional bass, guitar and drums rock format. Rattle focus almost exclusively on drums and more drums, beneath an overlay of vocal harmonies and percussive effects.

The exhibition from Friday 24 April until Sunday 28 June is open for visitors Monday to Friday between 9am and 7pm and some weekends. For weekends, visitors are advised to contact the centre beforehand.
