The Phoenix Road Performing Gardens

24 June - 26 June

Designed by NOOMA Studio, the Phoenix Road Performing Gardens envisions a street garden for the people of Somers Town, which facilitates performance, showcases the spirit of the local community, and explores alternative scenarios for the road to be pedestrianised during its weekend-long closure at the end of June. During the weekend you can experience a programme of performative events, establishing spontaneous spaces on Phoenix Road and providing a platform for the local community to perform, meet, and exchange.
