Launch party for WW Hatton Garden, 10 April 2012 To celebrate the launch of WW's new gallery space at 34/35 Hatton Garden, Clerkenwell, our inaugural exhibition 'Frightening Albert', (a solo show of new works by Phil Illingworth) was fabulously supported by performance from the enchanting Goodbye Leopold, cured culinary delights from Smoked in Peckham, divine cakes from raggertyblues and an amazing Vodka with a sensational story from Zorokovich 1917.

Special Frieze Sunday artist's talk:

Arrive promptly at 5pm. Exhibition open until 8pm. Places are limited, please rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org
Lucy May presented her first live work, Hospitality, 6-9pm on Thursday 7th July at WW Gallery (TimeOut First Thursday)
A live video link from the artist's studio conveyed the manufacture of fake Bombay Mix, exploring themes of the handmade, repetitive labour and fakery. The work is an irreverent take on the idea of DIY hospitality, and a rebellious statement against the current abhorrence of the artist's hand in contemporary practice.
Honeytrap / Petrushka
“Balkan-inspired slice of craziness...Puts me in mind of some of Camper Van Beethoven's finer moments.” - David Bowie, The Times
WW Gallery and Crooked Teeth present the Launch Party for Honeytrap's new album Petrushka on Thursday 2nd September 2010, 7pm til late at Bethnal Green Working Men's Club.
Energetic, irreverent and impossible to pin down, Honeytrap have forged an exciting and unconventional sound which embraces klezmer, folk, alt.rock and the more outré elements of pop. New album Petrushka brings these influences together into their strongest and most compelling release yet. David Bowie recognised the band's potential when he put them at the top of a new music poll in the The Times.
Honeytrap's launch gig will have amazing support in the form of the enchanting Olivia Chaney, who recently toured with Zero 7 and there will be puppetry and performance from the uniquely talented Monooka. Chris The Rock'n'Roll Town Crier will compère and DJ, plus there is art from WW Gallery's Boa Swindler and Sardine & Tobleroni.
