Sylvia Plath

Unseen Sylvia Plath drawings go on show

A collection of 44 drawings by the poet Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) never previously exhibited in this country go on show at the Mayor Gallery in London tomorrow. The sketches were given to Plath's daughter, the artist Frieda Hughes, by her poet father and Plath's former husband Ted before he died.

On The Agenda: We've got a hankering for Herzog this week. Though

From the home of Radiohead, Supergrass and the Foals comes a festival that's not so much a festival as a big street party (albeit indoors). On 10 October, down Cowley Road in the east of Oxford, 10 bands will be playing 10 venues, including The Big Pink, receiving rave reviews for debut album A Brief History of Love and critics' favourite Stornoway. Staged by the team that puts together the Truck festival, this local- music spectacular will be supplemented by poetry performances and an open-mic event. Time to warm up that larynx. www.thisistruck.com
