Dig out your flat cap, drape yourself in your finest pearls and join us for a celebration for all the ages! From 21st – 29th October 2023 be transported back to 1930s and 1950s London as we celebrate our past, present and future one year since opening the doors to the public with ‘Behind The Bricks’, a nine-day festival where visitors can discover more about Battersea Power Station’s rich heritage and transformation into a new riverside destination.
Expert Panel Talks
Revealing untold stories about the London landmark, experts involved in the restoration of the Grade II* listed building will discuss topics including rebuilding the iconic chimneys, the story behind the 1.75 million bricks used to restore the building and how the Power Station’s VIBs (very important birds), the Peregrine Falcons, and the biodiversity of the site have been cared for throughout the redevelopment. Plus, former employees at the coal-fired Power Station will share their experiences about what it was like to work there.
