Clerkenwell Design WeekTaking place at some of the more unusual locations in Clerkenwell - The Farmiloe Building, and the Priory of the Order of St John - Clerkenwell Design Week is a three-day festival celebrating the creativity, social relevance and advancements in technology behind design. Now in its fifth year, the festival brings installations, workshops, presentations, product launches and debates celebrating contemporary design, as well as four focused exhibitions; The Design Factory, Platform, Detail and, new for 2014, Additions - a curated collection of small design items and home accessories at the Crypt on the Green. Talks on London's architecture and design will be given by industry heavyweights like Ron Arad and Arik Levy, The Campana Brothers, Sir Peter Cook and Farrells architecture practice. In addition, there's a fringe programme with interactive jewellery-making and silversmithing during the festival, and over 20 local bars and restaurants in the area are taking part. Clerkenwell Design Week typically attracts 30,000 people and offers an excellent opportunity to enlighten yourself on the wonders of modern design or, if you're a member of the industry, meet new and fellow enthusiasts.

 

About Crypt on the Green

The Crypt on the Green, underneath St James Church in Clerkenwell, is on the site of the first nunnery to be built in London dating back to 1100AD. The crypt, with its magnificent vaulted ceiling, was restored in 1993 and provides an attractive space large enough to accommodate 300 people standing and available for private hire.
