Events to mark the opening of the iconic Battersea Power Station
Save the date! Tomorrow, on 14th October 2022 Battersea Power Station will officially open its doors to the public for the first time in history.
Almost 40 years after the Power Station’s lights were switched off, the icon is getting back to life and set to back one of London’s most exciting retail and leisure destinations. The announcement regarding opening date of London’s mid-century landmark was officially announced by the management through a group of newspaper boys and girls dressed in 1930s attire.
Not just the opening announcement was unique but the management has drawn an incredible line-up of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, leisure venues and exciting events to celebrate this historic occasion. It is all in a nod to when Battersea Power Station started its operations back in 1933 as a power station to generate electricity.
Battersea Power Station opening celebration
The historic building will be open from 10 am on Friday 14th October, where the visitors can indulge themselves in an array of fun-filled activities.
