The Weekend of Wonderful Things is a great opportunity to see some of YSP’s exhibitions out of hours. Be among the first to see Occasional Geometries: Rana Begum Curates the Arts Council Collection, in Longside Gallery; experience mind-boggling sculptures made from dice, glass, stainless steel and bronze in Tony Cragg: A Rare Category of Objects, in the Underground Gallery, Garden Gallery and open air; and take a look at Alice Pattullo’s superstition and folklore-inspired prints in Of House and Home, in YSP Centre.

The weekend is also a fantastic chance to discover an exciting display of new work in the open air by leading international artists, also part of the anniversary celebrations. New installations include Ai Weiwei’s dramatic group of 12 bronze Zodiac Heads and Wilsis, a beautiful new seven-metre-high cast iron head by Jaume Plensa which overlooks the lake.
