- The sculptor famous for balancing a bus on the roof of the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill on Sea will be giving a talk in the main hall at Avenue Campus at The University of Northampton on Tuesday.

Richard Wilson’s recent work, Hang On A Minute Lads, pays tribute to Michael Caine’s last line in the famous final scene of The Italian Job.

He is also known for work such as 20:50, a room full of oil, put together for the Saatchi Gallery in 1987.

His talk, Not By Half, will take place at the campus in St George’s Avenue between 6.30pm and 8pm.

The talk costs £4 or £2.50 for concessions. It is free to students at the University and booking is essential. Email
