Grayson Perry's Art Club is back for another series. With the success of the first show Grayson and Phillippa are back to celebrate all things creative. The first series was a weekly must do during the first lockdown so I can't wait to see what series two has in store. To have a show dedicated to creativity on prime time TV is fantastic for the creative sector. With weekly themes including family, nature, food and dreams be sure to check out the website in how you can get involved with the show.
