Charley Harper Memory Game

Charley harper

Forget 'Brain Training' and go old-school with this memory game featuring the beautiful illustrations of the late American artist Charley Harper.

The set contains 36 matching pairs of square cards featuring Charley Harper's nature-themed illustrations. The illustrations are full of colour, and are so simple in their design. Young children can play using fewer cards, or for a more challenging game you can use the whole set. The cards are packaged in a recycled natural kraft box.

The set is available from Amazon for £10.29.

See Quadrophenia at BFI Southbank

Quadrophenia

It is on television pretty regularly and readily available on DVD, but this week the BFI Southbank offers you the chance to see Quadrophenia on the big screen. Plus the screening will be attended by director Franc Roddam and star Phil Daniels.

The reason for the screening is that Quadrophenia came third in the BFI’s recent poll “Visions of the Future” where they asked 75 leading figures in the world of film and current affairs which one film they would like to share with futures generations.

There are still tickets available for the screening on Saturday 17 January at 5pm. Visit the BFI website to book.
