The gold, silver and bronze medals have disappeared from the trees in Leicester Square and London is settling into a busy autumn schedule. There’s certainly been lots going on at Four Colman Getty and the book prize season is in full swing.
September saw the announcement of the Man Booker Prize shortlist, which was universally acclaimed as one of the most exciting list of recent years. The Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction longlist was also announced this month and attracted a lot of attention, not least because it included Salman Rushdie’s memoir, Joseph Anton.

World Event Young Artists

World Event Young Artists festival launched

Early in the month the Four Colman Getty team were in Nottingham to help launch the first ever World Event Young Artists (WEYA). The 10-day interdisciplinary arts festival invited 1,000 of the best emerging artists from 100 nations all over the world to the city for the event, which took place across more than 30 cultural venues and alternative spaces.

Some of the many highlights included literature readings from European and South American writers at Backlit on Friday, a huge party curated by Gilles Peterson and including performances by Ayanna Witter-Johnson and Flavio Renegado at the beautiful Barton’s Bus Depot on Saturday and a spectacular Mandala performance in the Market Square on Sunday, marking the end to the Cultural Olympiad in the East Midlands.
