LIVE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE QUEEN ELIZABETH OLYMPIC PARK
Continental Drifts has designed an Autumn long series of cultural events in the the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which will culminate in a Very Vintage Christmas market on the weekend of the 6 – 8 December. We are offering local makers, traders and dealers a pitch at the first Christmas Market. The market will be complemented by a Roller Disco skating rink, live music and street theatre as well as locally produced food and ales. We are interested to hear from local artists and traders wishing to sell at this future iconic location.
To apply, download and complete this form. Deadline for applications is 8 November 2013.
How would you make use of a spectacular new public space in the heart of a growing community and easily accessible from anywhere in London?
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will offer over 250 acres of beautifully landscaped open space and 6.5 km of waterways. As a living legacy of the London 2012 Games, it will transform this area of east London into one of the capital’s most vibrant hotspots, hosting around 2,000 events each year. The events and temporary uses will establish the Park as a ‘must see, must return’ destination for local residents, those working in the area and visitors alike.
All kinds of indoor and outdoor events will be possible, from product launches, cinema screenings and waterside activities, to large-scale public entertainments, cultural fairs and outdoor exhibitions. There will be a wide range of indoor and outdoor venues and spaces available for interested parties and events organisers to choose from.
There will be vacant spaces within the Park available for temporary enterprises such as artists’ workshops, pop-up restaurants, micro-breweries and street markets. Some will be available for 6 months, with others available for up to 15 years – the possibilities are endless.
