Brought to life by the team behind Glastonbury Festival’s Shangri-La and Mutate Britain with support from Newham Council, the LPG will celebrate its opening on 30th June, 2012 with a public two-day Paradise Gardens festival.
The festival will be a veritable smorgasbord of global arts, entertainment and activities. Audiences can expect live music from the likes of Roots Manuva, Alabama 3, Ska Cubano and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble plus a spectacular pyrotechnic theatre from renowned performers The World Famous. There will also be off the wall street arts, a village fete, a swing dance ballroom, a vintage funfair, the best in London’s street food, plus a craft market.
The LPG is inspired by the Pleasure Gardens that existed between the 17th and 19th centuries, where people from all walks of life converged to immerse themselves in the culture that makes London great. London Pleasure Gardens brings this sense of community and cultural marvel back to the city with groundbreaking architectural structures and events.
