London Pleasure Gardens
(Unfortunately the London Pleasure Gardens have been put into administration and all future events there have subsequently been cancelled.)
Due to open on the Diamond Jubilee weekend, on 1st June 2012, the London Pleasure Gardens (LPG) revive a centuries old tradition when pleasure gardens were central to London social life. The vast new 60,000 metre squared site in the Royal Docks area has capacity for 40,000 people and is a major entertainment destination, focused on community, culture and entertainment. The team behind the project includes the organisers of Glastonbury's famous Shangri-La and Lost Vagueness parties, backed by the LDA and Arts Council. They're tasked with transforming Pontoon Dock from a derelict site with iconic industrial landmarks like the Millennium Mills and the Silo D building into a creative playground with a pop-up art hotel, a sculpture park, landscaped walkways, cafes and a floating cocktail bar. Depending on what day, and what time of day you choose to visit, you may see a local community theatre performance, an international arts project, or a well known band playing a gig. Set within the Olympic Red Zone, opposite the London Olympics: ExCeL Centre, the two sites are linked by a new bridge and LPG will host events during the Olympics. But before that we have the brand new Bloc festival on 6th and 7th July and later in the month, on 21st and 22nd July, the Africa Stage at the BT River of Music festival.
