My friend and fellow psychologist Nash Popovic is slumming it body surfing in Hawaii and asked me to speak to his ‘Pub Psychology’ group at the Antelope (pictured left) in Eaton Terrace last night. I do not get over to Chelsea very much nowadays but spent a lot of time there in the 90s so it was pleasantly nostalgic to amble down the King’s Road.
I popped into the Saatchi Gallery but was underwhelmed by the works in the current exhibition; ‘The Shape of Things to Come: New Sculpture. I was lucky enough to attend the Sensations show opening and cannot see how things have really moved on from then. Dead horses and Chapman style mannequins, it all felt a bit old hat so I quickly headed for the Antelope. I hadn’t been there previously and it seemed a nice little local pub.
Nash convenes the group with Michael Toppin who produces TV programmes but is also passionate about all things Psychological. Previous topics have included ‘dreams’, relationships and wellbeing and the group meets weekly. It attracts a diverse and engaging group up for some friendly banter. It was a pleasure to discuss wine with them and was interesting to note the healthy spread of ages, experience and interests.
