Barry Morgan - Cultural Ambassador of Bayswater

Barry Morgan

My goodness arts lovers - I’m so excited to be invited by Knox Community Arts Centre to be the cultural ambassador of Bayswater!

My recent visits to Bayswater have unearthed a world very closely linked to My World of Organs at Sunnyside Mall. I feel that Bayswater is the sister city to Sunnyside and my new home away from home. Now that my global profile has grown considerably, I do feel that it’s time for me to give back to the common man and woman. Standby for Barry’s Arts Advice and Home Tips©. Come on Bayswater and Knox – let’s celebrate culture!

We have nothing to lose – let’s share with the world the underdog with a bite!

Look forward to seeing you in your little cul-de-sac soon (I do love a culdersac).

If you love me, you’ll love Bayswater.

If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night?

Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
