illustration, silkscreen print and paint. The Art Show is also proud to announce the live line up for their S/S12 event. Nationally renowned a cappella vocal ensemble, Sense of Sound Singers will be performing from their new collection, songs of Joni Mitchell. With Brit Award Winner

infectious enthusiasm, have played Creamfields, Lake of Stars Festival Malawi, Isle of White festival and have enjoyed several sets at Liverpool’s big hitter Chibuku.
