Battersea Power Station is to host a seven-week outdoor cinema and food event this summer, giving Londoners a final chance to visit the site before its redevelopment is complete.
The power station and surrounding grounds are to be transformed into a major new residential and entertainment development delivering thousands of new homes, plus shops, restaurants and new workspaces.
This year’s pop-up park will be the last before development in front of the station commences and will take place from July 10th to August 31st 2014.
Everyman Cinemas are providing a 9 meter LED screen on which a selection of past and current hits, including Wayne’s World and The Wolf of Wall Street, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Drive will be shown.
Tickets start from £10 and can be purchased from everymancinema.com/thepowerofsummer.
Visitors to the park area will be able to enjoy a licenced bar supported by Heineken and food from street traders including Le Bun, Spit & Roast, Popdogs, Mama’s Jerk and Anna Maes. Admission is free before 17.30pm or £5 after and all weekend.
Rob Tincknell, Chief Executive Officer of the Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “We feel passionately about making Battersea accessible not only to those who have bought here but to those who want to come and enjoy our unique location on the river.
“We are working hard to create a diverse cultural community so this exciting Summer schedule will offer people the chance to come and experience this first hand and to get a real flavour of what is to come once the park opens officially in the future.”
