Coming to Kings Cross is a free 2 day event on 30th June and 1st July in Granary Square, Kings Cross. Visitors to the event will be led through the site by a series of sculptures by Herve Tullet created alongside 200 local children and students from Saint Martins Collegeof Art and Design. Childrens writers, illustrators and poets have been given free rein to create their own experiences for visitors.
There will be a Filipino-style fiesta with author Candy Gourlay, a chance to learn how to create your own comic book with comic creator Sarah McIntyre and a Roald Dahl disco among other events.
“We’re expecting between six and eight thousand people over the weekend,” said the festival’s director Dylan Calder. “We’ve gone up a notch in terms of the Pop-Up experience since our first one in Coram’s Fields last year.”
The festival is run in association with the Guardian and Central Saint Martins, sponsored by Bloomberg and funded by Arts Council and Love Camden. For further information see http://pop-up.org.uk
