Dovecot presents the work of the ever-popular artist, celebrated Turner Prize winner, and self-styled â€˜unapologetic fetishistâ€™, Grayson Perry.
This is your chance to see Julie Copeâ€™s Grand Tour, one of the most anticipated exhibitions of the summer, before it opens to the public.
Featuring incredible tapestries that illustrate the life of a fictional every-woman, the exhibition also explores A House for Essex designed by Perry with FAT Architecture. There is also an opportunity to listen to Perryâ€™s recorded â€˜Ballad of Julie Copeâ€™ which retells in the artistâ€™s own words of â€˜the trials, tribulations, celebrations and mistakes of an average lifeâ€™.
Tickets costs Â£15 (+ booking fee)
10:30 â€“ Tea and coffee (included in ticket price)

Every ticket sold supports the work of The Dovecot Foundation to advance visual art, craft and design in all its forms.
