The historic south west London building will open its doors to the public for the first time later this month…

Battersea Power Station will mark the moment it opens its doors to the public for the first time with a five day festival.
The opening is part of the second phase of an extensive £9billion regeneration project that has turned the former power station – which once supplied London with a fifth of its electricity – into a multi use neighbourhood with Foster + Partners designed homes, retail and wellbeing spaces, as well as a pretty epic sounding lift boasting 320-degree views of London’s skyline.
In celebration of this, the Festival of Power will run across two weekends in October and is a family friendly festival with activities and performances that celebrate Battersea Power Station’s heritage.
Arcadia’s Lords of Lightning, a spectacle involving multi-million volt bolts being fired between the two ‘Lords’ headlines the festival.
An interactive heritage trail, installations, and a programme of live music events are also on the bill, including performances from the Battersea Power Station Community Choir, and the Setia Drummers – a troupe of Malaysian percussionists.
Visitors will also be able to take a look inside the Grade II listed building and have a gander at its shops and bars and stop off for a bite to eat at one of its restaurants.
Festival of Powers is on Friday, October 14 to Sunday, October 16, and Saturday, October 22 to Sunday October 23.
