Drummond has used various media in his practice including actions, music and words. His actions too numerous to list, some more infamous than others; his music from the multi million selling KLF to the choral music of The 17; the words have accumulated into a pile of books.
Artist, placemaker and designer of the Discovery Season’s flagship space The Pavillion – Morag Myerscough will be presenting an instinctive journey through colours, patterns and her design practice, accompanied by fellow designer and collaborator Luke Morgan and his band The Highliners (including Ginge, former Meteors drummer) creating a punk rock design performance!
