Let there be (red) light: God's Own Junkyard comes to Soho

By Mark O'Donnell

Walthamstow's neon wonderland God's Own Junkyard has become one of the capital's worst-kept secrets in recent times, with its picture-perfect collection proving as instagrammable as Bao's steamed buns. Now, the bright sparks from E17 are set to return to the Lights of Soho gallery for a timely reminder of the area's seedier past. Building on the work of its late founder Chris Bracey, who started out producing signs for nearby sex clubs, the 'My Generation' exhibition is very much a family affair. His wife Linda and son Marcus are among those producing dazzling new work. This is one winter exhibition that's guaranteed to give you a warm glow.

'My Generation' opens at Lights of Soho on Thu Nov 26.
