A team of eight artists have been working for over a year to create Pallet Paradise, which sees 629 recycled pallet boxes turned into an immersive installation in a Tottenham carpark. The labyrinth of performance spaces and secret rooms will house works combining digital, craft, sculpture, storytelling, music and painting for people to discover and be entertained by. Daylight hours are family-friendly but after dark the installation will be illuminated and it's strictly over-18s – live music and a bar will help get the party going. Entry is free but donations are welcome.

Fantastic installation. Art is subjective but the comments below shouldn't discourage you from visiting.
What a great time had at Pallet Paradise. So good to see a community pull together something innovative for all to enjoy - no mean feat in a week or so! Some fab pop up acts, especially the piano guy who really can play anything you ask! Something different around every pallet too! Well done all involved.
I did take advantage of the reasonably priced bar though so a few more loos wouldn't have been unappreciated.
Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer below...
The latest in a series of brilliant pop up creative community events. These are always well met and hugely enjoyable.
I visited Pallet Paradise on Saturday night, found it to be a great alternative to a stock standard pub or bar... I would say it had a great 'pop up' feel, as well as a friendly community vibe!
a really enjoyable evening! live music, decent Art, affordable drinks and a proper community feel. can't fault it!
"A team of eight artists have been working for over a year to create Pallet Paradise". Seriously?? I have seen a lot of art installation pieces in London over the years and this is one of the worst. Talk about hyped up. I thought it would be worth an hours journey after I'd bought into Time Out's description of Pallet Paradise, their 'top pick' October event. The artist's impression image (also featuring on the advertisement poster) is so misleading - it looks huge! In reality it's tiny and calling it a 'labyrinth' is a huge exaggeration, akin to calling a greasy spoon cafe an exclusive gourmet restaurant. My son and I also got lost getting there because Time Out have listed the postcode as N16 5AX, the Evening Standard lists it as N4 1DH and the FB page as N4 1DN. I'm still not sure which is the correct one. All I know is that my son and I were looking forward to having a somewhat magical experience. In reality, we got lost, walked around for ages, finally ending up at the 'paradise' which was basically a load of boxes haphazardly bunged together to make the odd bridge or tunnel. Come on London, up your game - there are tons of talented artists out there. I'm not of them but could have put together something better in a month.
