Get Lost Inside A Colourful Labyrinth In London This Weekend

share on:
Colourscape Clapham

The marvellous Colourscape pop-up is returning to Clapham.

For a real aesthetic treat, you’re gonna want to head to Clapham Common between September 15–23. That’s when the enormous inflatable Colourscape maze can be found – a truly immersive psychedelic wonderland.

The structure consists of nearly 100 interlocking segments of colourful material, from small ovoid nooks to bright cathedral-like spaces. The results, which have been delighting guests for almost twenty years, are gorgeously relaxing and vivid.

The vibe is enhanced over the weekends, as you can find musical performers promenading through the perplexing place, and gathering occasionally in the central arena (if you can find it.) Alternatively, pop by on a weekday lunchtime for a quiet stroll through the exotically-coloured eggs.

Kids obviously LOVE Colourscape almost as much as ‘gram-hungry millennials, so, by all means, bring along the small human in your life, although do try not to lose them.
