A collection of bespoke silk scarves designed for Cassiopeia by Aza will be presented and available for purchase, accompanied by a mini exhibition of works from Aza’s new series Mothers and Daughters, exploring her heritage, adopted country and life as an immigrant.
Aza will also be getting together with her old bandmates from Manflu for a one-night-only performance at 8pm featuring covers of songs from the USSR.
On the menu will be Kazakh treats by Mince & Dough and drinks from Laika Beer, infused with pure birch tree sap – brewed in London, inspired by the north.
