A curious and colourful car arrives at Yorkshire Sculpture Park for Valentine's Cabaret

12 Feb 2018

Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) welcomes the Darktown Turbo Taxi, a curious and colourful car by Jonny Hannah, to the stunning Yorkshire landscape, in time for the artist’s Darktown Cabaret on 17 February 2018.
 
Guests at Hannah’s unique Valentine’s event will be among the first to see the Darktown Turbo Taxi, a second-hand Saab 9-3, customised by the artist in his studio.
 
There’s still a chance to join Hannah and friends for an unforgettable evening of fun and frivolity at the Darktown Cabaret (17 Feb / from 18.30 / £46). Featuring poetry readings, music, singing, piano playing, films and Art Bingo, the artist-curated cabaret includes performances by Hannah and his special guests, and is accompanied by a delicious three-course meal, selected by the artist.
 
As a special memento of the evening, Hannah will individually illustrate and print exclusive limited edition menus, along with bespoke wooden placement settings for each guest. Darktown clientele will also receive a special limited edition goody bag. The perfect gift (or antidote!) for Valentine’s Day.
 
Darktown Turbo Taxi – which overlooks the Country Park, roaming sheep and Henry Moore bronzes – can be seen at the Park from 17 February to 24 March 2018. The travelling artwork acts as a mobile advert for the emporiums and establishments that can be found in ‘Darktown’, a mythical hinterland, created by the artist as a response to the lack of individuality on the modern UK high street.
