The Living River project will be an original outdoor promenade performance along the route of the River Wandle and will take place between May- August 2017.

The performance will be led by teenagers from communities along the Wandle who will take part in a number of creative workshops hosted by Battersea Arts Centre, in partnership with local schools and other organisations.

The young performers will lead audiences on a journey along different routes of the river as part of an immersive performance piece in summer 2017. The Wandle’s history will be brought to life with original song, storytelling and spoken-word poetry that celebrates its built and natural environments!

To take part in this exciting opportunity with Battersea Arts Centre, please contact Lara Taylor on or 020 7223 2223.


This project is part of the wider Living Wandle Landscape Partnership Scheme, funded by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
