'The Arena' is Deans latest film: Screened at the V&A Museum London on Friday 27th September 2013 as part of it's Friday Lates sessions. The film spins around the Crash Bang Wallop World of Banger Racing, a 12 minute long ode to the sport and various characters from the Spedeworth Racing Track in Aldershot. 

The New British Magazine was invited into the V&A to curate a space and present works that reflected the theme of Destruction. Kez Glozier the Magazines editor brought together works for several different artists to present an emotional informative and at times hard hitting selection of moving image pieces that reflect the essence of The New British's reason for being. 

'The Arena' film is not the end of the project, like all the works they point to more facets that will be announced soon, so watch this space, the Facebook page and @Chalkley_News on Twitter for details.

Today Tim Peaks Diner has a special day. It celebrates the opening of its first pop-up Diner in the HMV store in Cambridge. Tim Burgess asked Dean if he'd like to pop-up a few pictures on the wall, and of course Dean said yes, the whole Tim Peaks thing is an ongoing organic creative development.

Oh and what a place the HMV in Cambridge is too ! A grade 2 listed building with 3 floors of music games and books ..and now a Tim Peaks Diner amongst it...how good is that...

The photograph of Dean was shot by Craige Barker, taken on 9th Sept when Dean visited the store to see it all coming together. The photograph of Tim was originally shot for the NME magazine and can be seen in the gallery on this site click here

This coming weekend the Diner pops up once again , this time in Portmeirion at the brilliant Festival No6 Dean and the Black Cat Djs this time including Sonny Scully Evans and Jack Hemingway (this link is more about him in general,  anyhow) they will also be spinning the vinyl , getting the people dancing and making the place jump to the Rhythm and Soul sounds Black Cat is known for....
