An eclectic line-up outdoor performance, art and free outdoor fun
Kensington and Chelsea's arts festival is back from 9th-25th June 2017 with a line-up themed around 'Island Life'. It'll be making its mark on West London with a host of striking pop-up installations, including a traffic island-inspired Portobello Pavilion in Powis Square, W11, and giant architect-designed sandcastles in locations across the borough.
There's an equally quirky line-up of performances on offer at InTransit Festival this year. Charlie Ward is creating an immersive adaptation of J G Ballard's novel 'Concrete Island', staged in the precise spot where the book's action unfolds. In 'Escape Artists', art school students will present new work in a former police station. 'Remnants' is an electro-folk opera inspired by Balkan themes, and performed in rooms around Notting Hill Gate tube station. Choral artist Verity Standen will mastermind various pop-up vocal performances in 'Airbourne'. And 'Mr Danger' (pictured) will tour the borough, performing a succession of underwhelming feats.
