Welcome to the Parlour Room! Join us during the Festival of the Future City and immerse yourself in 100 years of life in Knowle West: architecture, music, food, fashion, interiors and stories of everyday cultural icons.
This site-specific experience will feature new work by live performance artist Holly Beasley-Garrigan and artist/architect George Lovesmith, developed with local residents as part of the project 100 Years of Knowle West Style.
