Celebrate three decades of Frieze with Anniversary Sessions, a three-day online festival bringing together some of the leading voices in art and culture since 1991. Because conversation is better over drinks, chefs from the fairs’ award-winning partner restaurants will show us how to mix their favourite cocktails in a series of specially commissioned videos. And on Friday evening, the singer-songwriter Arlo Parks will play us out with an exclusive acoustic set from her new album.
