For the fourth instalment of its 'The Widow' Series, Veuve Clicquot presents ‘Rebels’, a three-day-long artistic celebration which pays homage to Madame Clicquot, the founder of the Champagne house.
Running from 15-17 November on London’s South Bank, the event will be narrated by Tom Hingston, who has created album artwork for the Chemical Brothers, and played a hand in the creation of David Bowie videos.
‘Rebels’ will see unique collaborations across six dedicated rooms, with artists involved including renowned photographer Nick Knight, light installation artist Chris Levine, photographic and film-making duo Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones, and musicians such as Joe Goddard of the band Hot Chip.

Room 6 - Field of Dreams (unity and celebration)
An elevated festival field, which will act as an ode to the culture of mass celebration, promoting unity and living life to the fullest.
