InTransit FestivalAn urban beach under a flyover, a pop-up art school, five Mexicans soaring through the air like birds; just a few of the wonders of this year's Intransit Festival of site-responsive art and performance in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. This year's festival welcomes MOBO and BAFTA award-winning hip-hop artist, 'Akala' performing in The Dissenters Chapel, Kensal Green Cemetery; the legendary birdmen of Mexico soaring through the air, in Emslie Horniman's Pleasance; an urban beach under the Westway Flyover; and a Pop-Up Art School in Powis Square. Take part in the creation of Spinning Threads on Sunday 21st June - a mass installation at Kensington Town Hall - and go on a scavenger hunt on Portobello Road (19th-28th June) as Portobello Market celebrates 150 years.
