Presented by Kit Green, Produced by Split Second
A punchy and provocative reworking of Bartholomew Fair by Ben Jonson (1614) from Olivier award-winning artist Kit Green.
1133 is a new fashion brand being launched 890 years after the first Bartholomew Fair; a four-day London Burning Man that ran for over 700 years, where you could both enjoy a hanging and gorge on delicious meat. Join the premiere catwalk show in iconic historical London locations. Like the 1614 play this is a state of the nation piece, presented through a high-fashion filter.
