As beatnik author and acid cosmonaut Ken Kesey used to say, you’re either on the bus or you’re nowhere at this year’s 100% Design event. So Channel 4 and Jam are doing their bit for public transport next week (26-29 September). Intrepid guest conductors including Mr Ubiquity Wayne Hemingway, clockwork radio boffin Trevor Bayliss and TV personality architects Charlie Luxton and Naomi Cleaver will be leading bus tours of the capital’s creative highlights. Those seeking to expand their design consciousness should call 020 8271 2162 for a ticket. If that isn’t thrilling enough, Channel 4 is filming it all for potential broadcast. Passengers be warned, you could get yourself on the telly.
