Mr Smith’s Letterpress Workshop, South Kensington

Never assume all design is better with a computer. This short documentary looks at Kelvyn Smith. He owns a traditional letterpress workshop in South Kensington, but creates work that fits well with contemporary and current design. This gives a great insight into how varied the design industry still is, with traditional trades like this still being great for design but unfortunately suffering under the weight of technology. If you like design or art and like being hands on with your work then have a watch and take some notes!

‘Brighton Festival has been at the forefront… an arts festival that makes connections with the real world’ The Times

Brighton Festival is an annual celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events – taking place in venues both familiar and unusual across Brighton & Hove for three weeks every May.

Now in its 49th year, Brighton Festival is an innovative commissioning and producing festival, which continues to win critical acclaim for its ambitious and daring programme. As England’s biggest curated mixed arts festival, Brighton Festival attracts some of the innovative artists and companies (and some of the most adventurous audiences) from the UK and around the world.

In 2014, we welcome the critically-acclaimed choreographer Hofesh Shechter as our sixth Guest Director. Previous Guest Directors have included poet, writer, broadcaster and former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen; actress and human rights campaigner Vanessa Redgrave; Burmese democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi; renowned visual artist Anish Kapoor; and celebrated musician Brian Eno.
