The final exhibition in the 'Sparked' series is 'No Politics' by Lemn Sissay, whose poem 'Spark Catchers' inspired the title of the series. The show attempts to broach the contentious subject of politics in sport and looks at the Olympic Games as a platform for international political statement. Sissay, one of five poets commissioned by the Olympic Delivery Authority, also makes reference to the social revolt of the Bryant & May match workers in 1880 at the factory which stands near the Olympic Park. A family day takes place on April 14 (10am-3pm).
