Get Lost Inside A Colourful Labyrinth In London This Easter

Colourscape Clapham

The marvellous Colourscape pop-up is returning to London.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the coronavirus outbreak in the UK, this event has been postponed. We’ll keep you updated when a new date has been confirmed – in the meantime, the event organiser will be automatically refunding any previously-purchased tickets.

For a real aesthetic treat, you’re gonna want to head to Wembley Park from April 8th-13th. That’s where the enormous inflatable Colourscape maze can be found this Easter – a truly immersive psychedelic wonderland.

Having graced Wembley Park and Clapham Common in previous years, Colourscape will make a welcome return to the former during the Easter weekend. The mind-bending 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 – indeed, some have described it like being “wrapped in a rainbow”, which just sounds really bloody lovely.

The vibe is only enhanced by musical performers, playing instruments from Tibet, China, and Mongolia – they’ll be promenading through the perplexing place, and gathering occasionally in the central arena (if you can find it). Alternatively, you can rock up during the week for a quieter stroll through the exotically-coloured eggs.

Best of all, all the proceeds from this year’s Colourscape will go to charity Brent Mencap, which helps support people with learning disabilities, by aiming to reduce the disadvantages and discrimination they face. Really vital stuff, indeed.

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. A quick word of warning though; Colourscape gets extremely popular as word gets out among local families, so to avoid the queues (which can stretch up to an hour!) we’d suggest you try and get there early on the opening day. Good luck, and see you in the maze…

Location: Wembley Park Boulevard, next to London Designer Outlet. Nearest station is Wembley Park.
Opening hours: 11am – 5pm, April 8th-13th.
Price: £5 for adults, £3 for children.
