  Mechanical Cabaret 30 December 2003  
'Man eating spaghetti in the Bath' Cabaret Mechanical Festival
There aren't many exhibitions where you can see a dog playing the piano, a man eating spaghetti in the bath and a skeleton dancing. One place you can is at the Cabaret Mechanical Festival at the Oxo Tower in London.

It's an exhibition of mechanical objects which you can move by turning a handle or pressing a button. The pieces on display are part of a larger collection run by a mother and daughter team. Sharmini Selvarajah went along to the exhibition where she spoke to designer Nikki Taylor, Sarah Alexander and her mother Sue Jackson who started the collection ...

The Cabaret Mechanical Festival runs until 11th January 2004 at the Oxo Tower, London.
