What's On


Luke Jerram

A parade of twinkling lights will transform bedtime into a magical, shared moment in this illuminated artwork created by Luke Jerram. Soothing musical refrains will accompany LED-lit bicycles on their twilight journey through the streets. Lullaby is a gift to Plumstead, created in collaboration with Plumstead Make Merry, Rockcliffe Manor Primary School and local residents, delivered at dusk on their doorsteps. 

Featuring a newly commissioned score using recordings made by Plumstead residents, by Dan Jones and Guy Hughes.
