[ What's on this week ]

Our pick of this week's community and cultural events:


UNAFFORDABLE ART FAIR 2003+ @ MENIER CHOCOLATE FACTORY
Menier Chocolate Factory
Wednesday 2-Sunday 6 April
Wed-Sat 11am-6pm, Sun 11am-4pm at the Menier Chocolate
Factory, 51 Southwark Street; free
The Affordable Art Fair with its 'something for
everyone' slogan has had its 15 minutes - get prepared
for the launch of the UN-Affordable Art Fair 2003+
whose time has come.  With a minimum price of 2003 the
Menier Gallery truly is in tune with the times. To
purchase something at this Fair you will need to be on
a first name basis with your bank manager! So forget
the volatile property market and investing in four
walls and instead invest in something to hang on them.
