Exhibition - Noël Coward: Art & Style
Noël Coward was an extraordinary person who led an extraordinary life, and now a free exhibition at the Guildhall Gallery is throwing a little light on the man, the myth he created, and that star quality that surrounded him. It’s curated by a bona fide Coward superfan, Brad Rosenstein, who has already put on acclaimed exhibitions across the U.S. The basic idea behind it is to show the enormous cultural ripples Coward produced, uplifting the nation through two world wars and one Great Depression, and how those ripples are still felt today…
Details: Noël Coward: Art & Style runs at the Guildhall Gallery from now until 23rd Dec 2021. Tickets are free, but must be pre-booked. You can find out more, and secure your spot at the website right here.
