We’re excited to announce that tickets for one of the highlights of the inaugural Totally Thames season of events – Fire Garden by Carabosse – are exclusively available through Time Out London. The artistic event held at Battersea Power Station on Friday September 5 and Saturday September 6 will see fire alchemy at its very best.
Renowned French troupe Carabosse will spark up excitement with their famous Fire Garden display. Expect the smell of wax, as thousands of points of flickering fire illuminate the Power Station acknowledging and celebrating this iconic site’s gritty, smoke-belching, industrial past.
Musicians play a mix of old style Parisian music with moody improvised sounds in one of the last chances to enjoy Battersea Power Station before it closes for redevelopment.
The commission is only possible thanks to the support of public funding by the National Lottery through the Arts Council's Exceptional awards programme, funds from The Mayor of London and sponsorship from Battersea Power Station Development Company.

Banyan on The Thames at Hotel Rafayel
There are some great views at the Hotel Rafayel's in-house restaurant - it's right on the banks of the Thames, just up from Battersea. Floor-to-ceiling windows maximise the gazing opportunities, but the al fresco roof terrace probably proves the plum spot. There's certainly plenty of variety on the food menu, with the evening a la carte offering dishes ranging from katsu chicken strips, chicken tikka, Cromer crab and Thai-style prawns to fillet mignon, baked honey-glazed whole sea bream and a 'lamb duo' of seared cannon and shoulder of lamb with a red wine jus. The wine list features a decent selection by the glass, complemented by bottles taking in well known vineyards from worlds old and new. Cocktails comprise well-known classics, including a number of martinis – available in the restaurant or the chic-looking Crystal Bar and Lobby Lounge.
Venue says: “Renowned Italian deep house DJ Alberto Tagliaferri will be heading up Friday and Saturday evenings starting Jan 19. Come and join the fun!”
