An exhibition of photographs of the Elephant and Castle shopping centre will be taking place on Saturday 25 September 2021 to mark the anniversary of its closure, one year ago. The exhibition will be at flat 70 on Sayer St, SE17 at the Elephant and Castle.
The exhibition has been organised by flat 70 co-founders Anthony Badu and Senam Badu and Latin Elephant, the local charity which campaigns and advocates on behalf of all traders at the Elephant. It will form part of a wider 'Elephant Carnival' which aims to celebrate the resilience of the local community.
The exhibition opens at 12 noon and finishes at 8pm.
A relocated traders walking tour will start at 2pm.
There will be speeches from invited guests at 3pm.
Various performances will also happen throughout the day.
The exhibition will emphasis the importance of what was lost when the shopping centre was closed and demolished, but also highlight the successes and struggles of the small independent traders since losing their premises and market stalls.
