Things to do: This month



Strictly Murder

Henning Wehn: Westphalia is not an option
■ Epsom Playhouse  ■  Wed 20 Sept

Sounds fun!

Internationally recognised sculptor Sean Henry returns to Woking, the place of his birth, with a show of artwork made over the last 15 years which will be exhibited at the gallery and in outdoor locations across the centre of town. Henry’s work is highly realistic and essentially modern in its choice of subject matter, colour and materials. His figures – often anonymous men and women – have an emphatic physicality which allows room for the viewer to draw their own interpretations.
