The London Festival of Architecture 2013 (LFA) invites local residents, businesses and visitors to celebrate its inaugural Great Titchfield Street Festival on Saturday 22 June.
One of a number of events planned for the month long festival, the inaugural street project will promote positive change in the area, transforming Great Titchfield Street – from Mortimer Street up to Langham and Foley Street – into a pedestrianised haven for the day.
The street festival will run from 12.00pm until 6.00pm, as part of the Fitzrovia Trail – a day co-ordinated by RIBA London with local architects, designers and engineers.
Local restaurants and cafes will make the most of the traffic-free street, to create a true street party atmosphere hosting BBQs and providing outdoor seating areas. In addition, there will be free ice cream and face painting for children and visitors can enjoy live entertainment from the swing band ‘Valentino’ and cabaret singer Kai Hoffman.
The street festival, conceived by Morrow + Lorraine Architects, has been made possible by the collaborative efforts of the local community, including the main sponsor Fitzroy Place and the contributions of Exemplar, developer of Fitzroy Place, Savills, Gleeds and Sir Robert McAlpine.
Great Tichfield Street’s transformation will showcase recent transport initiatives announced in December 2012 by Mayor of London Boris Johnson, to turn Market Place, Great Titchfield Street and the nearby side roads into a pedestrian oasis.
