What’s on > What’s on in August

David Lynch at HOME continues throughout August. Stop by the ground floor gallery to see the first major UK exhibition of Lynch’s wall-based art, My Head is Disconnected; and book for any of our classic Lynch films as part of our It’s A Great Big Wonderful World season, or one of the films the man himself cites as inspiration in David Lynch’s True Favourites.

We’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots with Penguin Pride, a night of awe-inspiring writers, poets and activists taking over our Theatre 2 stage.

Sound & Vision: Pop Stars on Film continues throughout August, bringing you some of the best big screen appearances by iconic music stars, including Mariah Carey in Precious, Queen Latifah in Set It Off and Cher in Come Back to the 5 and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean.

Continuing on the walls of our Granada Foundation Galleries all month is Aliyah Hussain’s Always Mysteries of the Tongue, a collection of ceramics, drawing, collage and print exploring the complexities of communication and miscommunication.
