Head for the moors – and art exhibitions – of the northeast, bed down in a London barge, and let the music play on at the Sziget Festival in Budapest
This corner of the northeast is better known for its craggy moorland and tumbling waterfalls than its haute couture. But a new exhibition opening this weekend at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle will bring a little bit of fashion flair to the Durham Dales. Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal is the first comprehensive collection of the French fashion designer’s work to go on display in the UK. It runs until October so there’s no excuse for missing out on the exhibition, or the tranquil charms of Teesdale.
