Janek Alexander Sun 17 April • 12pm • Sul 17 Ebrill Chapter’s new wave of performers in the 1970s included Janek Alexander. Janek has been Chapter’s director since 1996 and is standing down this year — see p13 for a Q&A with the man himself. This performance lecture follows on from his appearance at last year’s Experimentica festival, and features previously unseen video and rare recordings as he explores the early days of experimentation at Chapter.
Art Car-Bootique Sun 17 April • 10am — 4pm • Sun 17 Ebrill Chapter and Something Creatives (the minds behind Milgi and Cardiff Arts Institute) bring you Cardiff’s very first Art Car-Bootique. Taking place in our back car park, it’ll be the most eccentric and coolest car-boot sale you’ve ever been to, with 50 pitches of art, fashion and performance. Confirmed contributors include Holly Davey; Mermaid and Monster; Warp; Cerbyd; Supersaurus Swansea; and Wally French. We’re also expecting the SŴN gang to bring along a record store; Squeaky Hill to turn up in their stretch limo with a quiz in the back; CineCabaGoGo will be making an appearance; and Roath’s Northcote Lane market are setting up a couple of stalls. A special programme of live acoustic music kicks off at 12pm to tickle your ear drums in a sunny Sunday style. Confirmed acts include local legend John Mouse, harp-yielding songstress Georgia Ruth, alt-folksters No Thee No Ess, the lovely Eugene Capper and friends, and a group from the popular Cardiff Ukulele Nights.
Please Note: Our car park will be closed until 5.30pm on Sun 17 April. Please check the back of the brochure or go to www.chapter.org for details of additional local parking.
