THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED TO TAKE PLACE AT NOTTINGHAM CONTEMPORARY IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

The Penny Podcasts is a series of recordings and live events at Syson Gallery in Nottingham for The Grand Tour Season 3. 

Inspired to reimagine an 18th Century Coffee house, or ‘penny university’ embodying the spirit of a time when access to news, debate and enlightenment thinking cost a mere penny in exchange for exotic hot beverages and stimulating chat.

Each week we’ll be covering topics which touch upon Grand Tour themes including the senses, Sprituality, Women in art, Local History, Time Travel, Industry, Labour and Education plus much more along the journey.

Our guests which will comprise artists and curators from the Grand Tour and its Fringe alongside artists working regularly with the gallery. not to mention other experts outside of the broad field which we call art.  Other guests will include historians, gastronomists, neurosurgeons, musicians, occultists, dramaturgs.

In our first live event, we’ll uncover the history of coffee and chocolate and it’ll be cohosted with the amazing Shelly Preston from Ottar and Dr Ruth Larsen from the University of Derby.
