Orla Kiely, British Asian theatre, Belinda Bauer

Designer Orla Kiely is famous for her distinct Stem-patterned bags and a global brand that includes fashion, accessories and homeware. Now the first exhibition dedicated to her opens at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London.

Crime novelist Belinda Bauer talks about her new novel Snap. Based loosely on the real-life murder of Marie Wilks in 1988, it begins with three children left at the side of the road in a broken-down car as their mother goes to find an emergency telephone. Twice winner of the Crime Novelist of the Year, Belinda considers the importance of childhood memory, landscape and the ordinary fears that haunt us in her writing. What is the identity of British South Asian theatre today? As the Royal Court Theatre holds a series of evenings celebrating the canon of British South Asian theatre going back 50 years, theatre directors Sudha Bhuchar and Prav MJ consider the importance of that legacy, how you preserve and honour the past while looking at the future, and how the preoccupations of South Asian theatre makers has changed in the last 50 years.…read more
