Exhibition Road ShowHome to the highest concentration of world famous museums and galleries in London, Exhibition Road is the place to go for world class culture and for 9 days the Exhibition Road Show offers a programme of games, dances, scientific experiments, music, aerial displays, and visual art installations. National institutions including the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert (V & A) Museum are taking part with a huge variety of events from a pop-up ballroom to a one man alien band, all broadcast via the On Air radio located high above the road. There's a huge variety of live music from bands like 'the saviour of British folk' (The Independent), Eliza Carthy and Band who have twice been nominated for the Mercury Prize. The award-winning Trinidadian Ebony Steelband, the largest costume and steelband at the Notting Hill Carnival in 1970, will also be putting in an appearance. The Olympianist, Anthony Hewitt, who is cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats - with his piano in tow - will be performing outdoors in a specially adapted 'BeethoVan'. And The Exhibitionists, an international ensemble of acrobats and dancers specially formed for Road Show will be performing under the direction of international circus director Sue Broadway. You can also take part in the Games for the Games - a selection of games from the Museum of Childhood's collection of vintage board games, one of the finest in the world. Dress up in your favourite vintage outfit and join the Vintage Sytle Ride parade; borrow a vintage Pashley from Tally Ho! Cycle Tours (limited number available) and meet up at Tally Ho! HQ at Waterloo for a guided ride through Kensington to Exhibition Road.
