When I say street, you say party.
It’s been a long time since new stations appeared on the London Underground. Last century, all the way back in 1999, to be precise.
So, if you’re thinking what I’m thinking, you’ll agree that we’ve got to make the most of is. And luckily, some likeminded legends have set up a street party in Battersea to celebrate the addition of the two new stations: Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station.
On September 25-26, between 11am-6pm, there will be one hell of a shindig to celebrate the previous Monday’s (September 20) grand opening of the new stations.
I mean, come on. Who doesn’t want a little dance and wander around to big up our transport network, eh? You’ll be treated to a roster of different activities to do so in style.
Live music, courtesy of Busk In London and the Battersea Power Station Community Choir will fill your ears; while your eyes gaze on at the live street art from renowned London street artists, as well as a bespoke piece of art from Thierry Guetta, or Mr Brainwash. Plus, there’s a “dine around the world” experience, just in case you get peckish. This involves a wide variety of grub around the station offering delightful eats to the partygoer, including authentic Italian at Francesco Mazzei’s Fiume; Gordon Ramsay’s Street Pizza; Spanish bites at Tapas Brindisa; delectable Indian at Cinnamon Kitchen and fine Japanese ramen at Tonkotsu.
Furthermore, you’ll have street food vendors, locally brewed beers, performances from street dancers and parkour shows, pop-up merchandise shops and a beautiful floral roundel made by Moyses Stevens. Not bad for a station celebration.
Join the weekend fun on September 25-26 at 11am-6pm at Battersea Power Station. Find more information here.
