Artist, musician and Turner Prize-winner Martin Creed invites you to a delightfully nonconformist evening of words, music and more, as he takes up residence for the 2017 International Festival.

The show is running 4-27 August. If you plan to attend earlier that month you may want to join another event: Martin Creed's Words and Music (4-14 August)

Expect an extraordinary encounter between artist and audience, a bit contemporary music hall, a bit art lecture, shot through with Creed’s renowned wit and absurdity, and delivered in his own highly original style. Expect to be surprised, and you won’t be disappointed.

Part court jester, part subversive philosopher, Creed famously won the Turner Prize in 2001 with his controversial Work No. 227: The lights going on and off. His works have been shown in major exhibitions across the world, including Edinburgh’s own Fruitmarket Gallery.

Creed has always produced musical compositions. He has composed for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and London Sinfonietta; launched his own label – Telephone Records – in 2011 to release his albums of ramshackle, catchy folk-pop; and performed at music festivals throughout the UK and Europe. Join Martin Creed for an iconoclastic evening of art and silliness, humour and subversion.
