Tonic For The Nation: The Festival Of Britain 1951

4 May, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Our Blue Badge Guide Rachel Kolsky presents this event for the 70th anniversary of the day it opened to the public !
Exciting and futuristic, the Festival of Britain brought fun and colour to post-war austerity London with its Skylon, Dome of Discovery, Battersea Pleasure Gardens, an iconic logo and specially commissioned artworks from artists and sculptors, yet to be household names. Fabulous memories remain, particularly at the Royal Festival Hall and the Lansbury Estate in Poplar.

If the time or day are inconvenient , a recording can be sent to you to be watched at your leisure within the 3 days following the Zoom.
