Homelessness charity the House of Barnabas are opening up to the public once more with their fantastic fundraising initiative: a week long festival of arts, music and culture. The setting is exceptional, a combination of 19th-century chapel and Grade I-listed Georgian townhouse just off Soho Square, and the planned installations, performances and talks no less impressive. We're looking forward especially to Hester Reeve's 4 meter-tall inflatable teapot (compete with teacups and biscuits), but other highlights include a Saturday night silent disco in the house's secret court yard, 'JacketsPainting/ Painting Jackets' edible and wearable art from Marike Etsna and film screenings from artists including Jeremy Deller and Laure Prouvoust. The house itself usually functions as a not-for-profit members club, which offers on site hospitality training and intensive mentoring to the homeless.
