Brockwell Passage Opening Thursday 17th November
209 St Jude’s Primary School students have transformed Brockwell Passage, Herne Hill, with their own individually-designed stencils to enhance a new mural by local artist, Victor Szepessy, which signposts and celebrates the neighbouring area.
Our opening event for the ‘Brockwell Passage Picnic Spot’ will unveil the Blue Plaque, ‘turn on the lights’ of our new lanterns and reveal the neighbourhood bench.
When? 4pm, Thursday 17th November
Where? Brockwell Passage - opposite Herne Hill Station on Railton Road, running between The Commercial Hotel Railton Rd and The Florence on Dulwich Rd. SE24 0JN
The winning design for the new symbol for St Jude’s school, designed by children as part of the project, will also be announced, and local artist Victor Szepessy, who created the mural, will paint this onto the wall as part of the event.
Miss Alexandra New, Head Teacher at St Jude's will ‘switch on the lights’.
With sincere thanks to our neighbours The Florence for hosting refreshmentsand BetFred for helping power the lights and supervise the passage.
Brockwell Passage has long been a dumping ground for commercial waste; an unwelcoming thoroughfare; and a hotspot for anti-social behaviour. As part of the #CleanHerneHill movement, the Herne Hill Forum have created and led this project, collaborating with Victor Szepessy and St Jude’s Primary School to create a beautifully lit public realm and a new piece of collaborative public art to restore pride in the centre of Herne Hill.
