Celebrate the power of pandemic creativity at this one-of-a-kind exhibition

From DIY pottery kits to the Royal Academy's iconic tweet challenging its followers to "draw us the best ham", creative challenges were a crucial form of distraction, entertainment and self-expression during lockdown. In May 2020, the Southbank Centre launched a fitting initiative to connect with people who needed it most: Art By Post, a project that saw over 4,500 people at risk of loneliness and isolation receive free cultural activities through their letterboxes. The result? More than 600 gallery-ready artworks that act as a pandemic time capsule.

Now, the works created as part of the project – including drawings, paintings and poetry – are being showcased in a free exhibition, with each piece accompanied by a photo of its artist on their doorstep. Opening at the Southbank Centre on Monday, Art By Post: Of Home And Hope is themed around things that powered people through the pandemic: hope, nature, sound and movement. The collection will travel around the UK from October, but if you don't catch it in the capital, you can still see all the artworks in an online gallery. Prepare to be moved by humans' capacity for creativity in the hardest of times. 20 Sept–3 Oct; free; Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, SE1

This uplifting musical comedy will become your next sing-along obsession

If you're a fan of a rousing showtune, chances are you're familiar with the award-winning West End musical Everybody's Talking About Jamie. Based on the true story of Jamie Campbell, a wannabe teenage drag queen who was refused entry to his secondary school prom because he was wearing a dress, the hit stage show has now inspired a joyous film adaptation starring Sarah Lancashire, Richard E Grant and Sharon Horgan.

"From the moment I watched Jamie (newcomer Max Harwood) voguing down a suburban Sheffield street on his morning newspaper run, I knew this film would be bursting with feel-good cheer," says Stylist contributor Christobel Hastings. "But Everybody's Talking About Jamie goes beyond a message of acceptance for LGBTQ+ youth. One of the most powerful scenes explores the backstory of Jamie's mentor and veteran drag queen Hugo Battersby aka Loco Chanelle (Grant), who recalls the brutal realities of the Aids pandemic and the subsequent activism that defined a generation. While attitudes are shifting for the better, this heartfelt musical proves we must keep having conversations about our shared history. Because as the film's title card declares, 'this story really happened'". Watch now on Amazon Prime
