Would you believe it – 'Art Attack' is 26 years old! To celebrate this landmark moment, Cereal Killer Cafe in Camden has dug into its big box of VHS tapes to screen a ‘best-of’ from the hugely popular children’s show with the chance to get creative with art workshops in-store and dance to '90s hits on June 30.
Anyone who grew up in the '90s will remember running home to watch the show, small fingers tightly curled around colouring pencils, brushes and empty cereal boxes, ready to recreate the projects on the telly. The host was the permanently happy Neil Buchanan, who presented the show from 1990 to 2007 (it was one of CITV’s longest-running shows) and had a knack of making everything actually look do-able.
Cereal Killer Cafe Founder Alan Keery will host the evening, getting people to pull on aprons, roll back sleeves and get stuck into making art. One highlight will no doubt be rediscovering the ‘Big Art Attacks’ from the show. Get ready to ooh and ahh as the camera pulls back to reveal that bundle of jumpers, shoes and spoons is in fact a helicopter. Or a clown. Or a toadstool. Or something else.
People are encouraged to dress up as themselves in the '90s but you could always go dressed as the real star of the show – a massive tube of PVA glue.
The £7 ticket includes materials, and bottomless cereal bowls will be available for £12. BYOB.
