On 29 and 30 October 2021, the Line of Light festival celebrated the communities who live and work above the Northern line extension running between Battersea Power Station, Nine Elms and Kennington Tube stations.

The outdoor festival featured lights and projections from Projection Teknik, following the route of the 3km tunnels above ground.

A daisy chain of light beams painted the route of the tunnels in the sky that created a ‘Line of Light’ across the south London night. A selection of buildings along the route were lit up with visual projections, accompanied by soundscapes available as podcasts, created with local groups to make a specially commissioned ‘album’ of the area.

Two outdoor festival hubs at New Union Square, SW11 and Wilcox Road, SW8 celebrated in style with food, free activities and entertainment, bringing together local businesses and communities over the festival weekend. Wilcox Road festival hub was supported by Vauxhall One.
