Jamie Scanlon’s Apocalypse exhibition will see four original Andy Warhol pieces on show alongside other works from national and international artists such as STIK, Mason Storm and Banksy.

The new show is being billed as Weston’s biggest exhibition of urban art since JPS’ previous show, Resurrection.

The opening night will be attended by 10 hostesses to assist with the running of the show, as well as Terry Sue Pat from classic TV show Grange Hill, who is also exhibiting some of his own work.

The exhibition will be open from December 12 at 7.30pm at Regent Studio in Oxford Place with an after-party at Loft nightclub.

It will be open daily to the public thereafter, from 9am-4pm until December 24.
