Launch Event ideas


There will be a celebratory summer/autumn “Launch” to formally introduce the new sculptures to the community, taking place in and around the dock itself (Albert Embankment, Lambeth).

Originally thought of as a fire show (to have taken place at the beginning of 2009), the format is developing to have flags/flares/flowers all in the mix. There will definitely be the opportunity for people to make things and do things during the day. Other ideas mentioned so far have involved temporary arches to be burned, a burning viking ship, a workhorse fire sculpture, fire lanterns with patterns made/inspired by local schoolchildren’s artwork or Royal Doulton, steam and burning, floating sculpture, depending on the tide.

Spectacular fire

Again, contact us at to stay informed, leave a note at the bottom of the page or come back here for times and dates.

Any more ideas at this stage would be great. The plan will be developed as the project moves forward.
