fantastic feats

​Scale the heights of imagination and celebrate towering triumphs of architecture, invention and engineering with Fantastic Feats: the building of London.

This six-month long season of street theatre and circus, art installations, live performance, exhibitions, walks and tours is inspired by several important historical anniversaries, including: 200th birthdays of Sir Joseph Bazalgette, the inventor of London’s sewer system and Sir Horace Jones, architect and designer of Tower Bridge among other City landmarks; 125 years since the completion of Tower Bridge and 150 years since Blackfriars Bridge and Holborn Viaduct opened. 

Event highlights include:

  • The People’s Tower by Olivier Grossetête
  • Bodies in Urban Spaces by Willi Dorner
  • Architecture of London exhibition exploring how the capital’s buildings have been depicted by, and provided inspiration for, artists over the centuries.

Keep your eye out for more events being announced over the next few weeks and months, including a collaboration with Greenwich+Docklands International Festival.
