|Ifsomeone bought me this I’d dump them too!|
There is no better way to get over the love of your life cheating on you with that bimbo from next door than by
burning his prize possessions having a good clear out. But what happens to those old teddy bears, love song compilations and heart shaped ornaments? Where do they all go?
The Museum of Broken Relationships that’s where. There you will find an exhibition of ordinary but poignant objects that each tell the story of a past relationship, donated by individuals all over the world.
The exhibition will span two venues, The Tristan Bates Theatre and a pop-up exhibition on 38 Earlham Street plus objects will also be featuring in windows of Tatty Devine, Coco de Mer and Urban Outfitters.
Throughout the three-week run, commissioned artists, theatre makers and performers will also be taking inspiration from the exhibition to create various art work, as well as a programme of performances including immersive theatre, writing workshops, dance and acting performances. A collection of these artistic expressions will be showcased on August 27th at the Seven Dials festival.
So if you fancy shedding one last tear for the one that got away visit the Museum of Broken Relationships between 15th August – 4th September.
Admission £3.50 and tickets will be valid for one week.
