This autumn a playful, uplifting and thought-provoking exhibition, A Barbecue of Regrets, celebrates the town of Luton through the shared regrets and reflections of its community.

Over several weekends in May, Nottingham-based artist, raconteur and self-styled “artist-confessor” Tom Hackett walked the streets of Luton wearing his eye-catching dayglow ‘Conversation Suit’ and pushing a wheelbarrow full of charcoal briquettes. Members of the public were invited to share regretted moments or actions with Tom, and to write them on a post-it note inserted into a hole in the charcoal bricks.

Hackett has used these anonymous regrets as the source material for his new exhibition. A Barbecue of Regrets, which features two key new strands of work. At the opening of his new exhibition, the artist will barbecue these Luton-sourced regrets, using the post-it note briquettes to cook free burgers for participants and passers-by.
