Delisia Howard and Chris Price
Celebrate their favourite people, places, and corners of the realm from Biba, Mods, and Seaside Piers, to Edward Burra, Francis Bacon, and Stonehenge from Beau Brummell, Pauline Boty, and the BBC to Syd Barrett, Modesty Blaise, and the Crown Jewels.
Plus live music from very special guest:
Ben Clarke emerges from the fields of Lincolnshire to bring you his debut EP, Field to City, recently released on iTunes. Ben was previously a part of the now disbanded Littl'ans, and has toured internationally. His performance at The Horse Hospital will mark the first appearance since the release of his first solo record. Turn up early and expect soaring vocals & warm guitars.
Writer Delisia Howard was not only in charge of cosmetics and household for Biba from 1968 to the closing of Big Biba in 1975, but she was also the in-house model on whom Barbara Hulanicki would fit and refine all her sample clothing designs for the highly influential fashion label and shops.
With her husband, the illustrator Chris Price, Howard has created the imprint Hazard Books, to produce fabulous limited edition and handmade books, two of which, InBiba, and SinBiba, have continued their creative collaboration with Barbara Hulanicki, as they also feature her illustrations.
Books from the Hazard imprint make wonderful presents. Copies of Brit Bitz, InBiba, SinBiba, and other Hazard books, which Delisia and Chris will be happy to sign, will also be for sale on the night,
with the cover prices specially reduced by 15%
(Please note no credit or debit card facilities are available on the night)
