Grayson Perry talks about his spiritual relationship with cycling. Venting his peeves and celebrating the joys – expect passion, cultural observation and a lot of laughs from the award winning artist and broadcaster.
“I’ve spent a lot longer on two wheels than I ever have in a dress. In this one-off talk for the charity Sustrans, I will be talking about my almost spiritual relationship to cycling and making observations about its present-day culture.” Grayson Perry
Grayson Perry CBE RA is an award-winning multi-media artist, best-selling author, BAFTA winning broadcaster and Reith lecturer. In 2003 he rose to fame as the first ceramic artist to win the Turner Prize. Since then he has solo exhibited works nationally and internationally, written and presented critically acclaimed documentaries, sold-out the London Palladium with his one-man show ‘Typical Man in A Dress’ and continues to overtake all other cyclists when going up hills.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go to Sustrans, the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle.
