in Regeneration, Wandsworth

Open air opera at Battersea Reach

Last night saw an incredibly successful event organised by Wandsworth Town Centre Partnership (with support from St George). I made some fairly feeble attempts at recording elements – an AudioBoo:

And a video, although distance and the light mean phone cameras are not going to produce great results it does give a good impression of the set-up and the size of the audience.

Although the event was a real success what struck me the most was the potential Battersea’s riverside has. I never really think about Battersea having a destination riverside, Wandsworth has a huge length of accessible river, which is very picturesque – but something I’ve always walked or run, rather than actually gone to as a destination in itself.

Hopefully the success of the event last night will mean that more will be made of the river and more people who shared my misconception, will re-think the Thames at Battersea.
