Browse the bookshelves to the sounds of much-loved pop trio Saint Etienne as they DJ their favourite pop tracks in the old assembly hall on the Lower Ground Floor.
Made up of vocalist Sarah Cracknell, Pete Wiggs and Bob Stanley, Saint Etienne formed in 1990. Their debut album Foxbase Alpha, released in 1991, established them as a quintessentially English proposition - part Lyons Corner House, part acid house -and their love of techno, the Beach Boys and classic English pop marked them out as something charmingly unique. Given their love of pop it's no surprise they later worked with Xenomania's Brian Higgins on their 2005 album Tales From Turnpike House (an album also featuring vocal contributions from David Essex).
A group with a keen cultural sense and a classic suburban love of the 'romance of London', they recently contributed soundtracks for films documenting the landscape of London including most recently How We Used To Live, which will be screening immediately after this event. Click here for details.
