«What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing. You wouldn't be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought.» — David Hockney
The Blake Society invites all members and guests to celebrate the end of exams in sun-soaked, splendorous, sixties style. Inspired by Hockney's 1967 print, and the art works it subsequently inspired (Luca Guadagnino's 2015 film, for example) the afternoon promises fun, food, friends, and (re)freshing beverages.
Think Californian summers, relaxing by the pool. Expect live music, arts and crafts, entertainment, jaw-dropping decorations, and the ~centre piece~ a pool* of our very own.

*(unfortunately the closest we can get to the luxury of a Californian poolside is a paddling pool, but with suspended disbelief and a bit of imagination, anything is possible xxx)
