Damien Thill had a chat with Robin Hopcraft from the south-London based band the Soothsayers. They have an upcoming gig at the Hideaway in Streatham in a collaboration with two young producers promising to provide an interesting evening of musical entertainment. Damien tells us all about it on Monday.



Toby Boutall is a man on a mission. He wants men to stop trying to ‘man up’ and to talk about their feelings instead. On Tuesday, Ian finds out about ‘Will Power’, Toby’s dark comedy at Theatre N16.

Hyperrealism comes to Wandsworth via the Plus One Gallery, celebrating its move to Battersea Reach from Pimlico with its first Winter Show in new premises. Listen in on Wednesday as owner Maggie Bollaert shows Bev Boyd some monumental, transcontinental depictions of life which are definitely not as we know it.


South London in a Spin showcases the work of six South London artists and on the 11th February the exhibition goes online.  They use video, sound and image to show each artists approach to making art.  An interactive studio tour also gives you a look around the studio and a chance to explore their motivations.  Listen to Tatum’s interview about it from the Omnibus in Clapham on Thursday.



ArtsWatch broadcasts Monday to Thursday 6.30-6.45pm and on alternate Sundays 6pm we air all the best bits in a round-up show ArtsWatch Replay.
