I love this place! I also love my friend Sharon and I don’t get to see either of them nearly enough. Imagine my delight when another love of mine – her royal highness, Madame Tracey Emin – arrived at The Hayward and Sharon and I got to bunk off for the afternoon and swan about giggling at Mme Tracey’s many drawings of her lady box.
And the blankets – if you’ve never seen one of Tracey’s blankets in the flesh then you’re missing a little something in this life. Everything that The Hayward puts on is the nuts! Go and see whatever is on there whenever you are in town. Trust me. And go out on the roof to look at Waterloo Bridge. That’s pretty special too!
