Turning Vacant Spaces into Vibrant Places

June 15 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

As part of the London Festival of Architecture: Turning Vacant Spaces into Vibrant Places – The LightHouse and Gardens Tour and Storytelling Circle.

As part of the 20th Anniversary of the London Festival of Architecture the Lighthouse Community Gardens opens its doors for a tour of the unexpected and wonderful things it has nestled in this green oasis. This space has been redeveloped by Hadley Property Group in order to support organic community wellbeing and togetherness.

Come and explore the community garden, wood-fired sauna, cafe, community centre and sustainable transport hub. This tour will culminate in free gardening activities for all the family and finally a storytelling circle led by professional storyteller, Polly Wilson, focusing on the theme of Reimagining.

This is a perfect day out for the children to enjoy the outdoors, unleash their imaginations and learn some gardening basics. Adults, bring a picnic and come bask in the sun (we hope). The Lighthouse Community Garden is looking forward to welcoming you!
