Memory Monsters – Vauxhall


The monsters have awoken. 

For one Saturday in June the Memory Monsters will make Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens their lair. Join them as they seek out memories of London’s changing landscape. 

Pidgin Perfect are collaborating with designer Lizzie Abernethy to bring a one-off, family friendly event to Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens on Saturday the 3rd of June. As part of the opening weekend of London Festival of Architecture 2017, the Memory Monsters will roam the gardens gathering memories of London’s changing landscape. The design of the Memory Monsters will illustrate the challenges fundamental to the changing face of London. Taking on the guise of familiar local landmarks, a ‘rumpus’ of monsters will inhabit this key civic space, bringing an out of the ordinary spectacle to Vauxhall. 

The event is supported by Vauxhall One, the Business Improvement District (BID) for Vauxhall. Owned, funded and lead by the businesses of Vauxhall. The BID exists to make the area a safer, cleaner, greener, cultural destination. Pidgin Perfect is an award winning creative consultancy specialising in delivering creative events, development programmes and placemaking projects. Pidgin Perfect engage diverse communities in the process of change –  using design and cultural activity to create connections between people and place to build more resilient communities for everyone.
