Cultural Wednesday at Tate Britian

Once a week, usually on a Wednesday, I head out of the house and go to see something out of the ordinary.  It can be a building, an exhibition, a garden, some sculpture, a concert or a pile of ancient ruins – it doesn’t matter as long as it’s interesting.  These jaunts have become known as ‘Cultural Wednesdays’ in our household.  When not jaunting around I love to read and share my thoughts on what I’ve read here as well.

Thirty years ago I joined the BBC and spent many happy years working as a TV and Radio producer mainly on Business and Economics programmes.  Twelve years ago I waved goodbye to the Corporation and hello to identical twin boys.  Whilst I love blogging, paid writing work is always welcome, if you like what you read and need a journalist don’t hesitate to get in touch!

    Good Morning Catherine, I know this may come out-of-the-blue but I’m looking for HI RES images of Iggy Pop by Stephen Haines at the Summer Exhibition and wondered if you would give me permission to use your pic. I’m happy to credit you…but time is tight and we’re on deadlines so I hope you can get back to me as soon as possible. Please get in touch if the pic is available. Many thanks. Vanessa

    Love this idea – I do the same thing each week in New York City, but on the weekend instead as I teach at a law school during the week. I’m so glad I’ve discovered your blog and look forward to reading more! Best, Susan
