Photo by Pauline Eyre by Haresh Patel The Big Purple Cow is back on her back, legs in the air! It’s now an established marker of the arrival of summer days when the Southbank cultural quarter has her slightly less dignified, more raucous inflatable sister park herself on the lawn next to the more sensible […]
