Petersham Nurseries, Richmond


My first visit here was with a dear friend Katie Saxby on our way to Ham Polo Club. What a magical Nursery. I was totally mesmerised by the space and the beautifully designed garden furniture. The careful placing of objects and colour around the long light corridors of plants, lead me on a journey of much wonder and much sighing.

I love the vibrant colours that litter the tables and walls alongside the colonial collection of images and trinkets.

A heavenly space for tea and cake.

The Readers - Specialists in keynote, foreground and electro-acoustic sounds.

I love The Readers. Totally. Utterly.

I went to a gig of theirs' nearly a year ago now I think, mainly to support friends of mine who were involved. Not having really any idea of who or what they were,
I fell in love.

The Readers transport me to another world filled with passion, fantasy,
chaos and humour.

For me, they have the energy I felt when I bunked school to go and see some of the early punk bands. The raw energy and frantic passion that fills each performance has drawn me again and again to watch them.
