Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!


Alexandra Palace's Creativity Pavilion opened lat week providing a new home in the recently developed East Wing of the building for the charity's Creative Learning programme. The programme uses the arts and history of the palace to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to develop new skills and boost their well-being.

Working with architects and fabricators, the Pavilion was created with input from local schools, health service providers, set designers, volunteers, artists and organisations such as Haringey Shed and Haringey Music Service.

The result is a pavilion which can be transformed and adapted for a range of activities, including  workshops for schools, music and theatrical performances, community-curated exhibitions, creative sessions for people with disabilities and family drop-in classes, such as Baby Jazz.

The upper levels of the space form a light box, whilst below a series of fixed and moveable panels enable the space to be enclosed from the rest of the East Court or opened up to become part of the larger space. The interior is equipped with a lighting rig and speakers which gives a theatrical feel, whilst the new suspended ceiling and motorised curtain rail allows for the space to be darkened for projection.

The official launch on Tuesday 25 February included the opening of a new exhibition called Little Inventors. This is the culmination of a year-long project that challenged children across north London to start on their own inventive journey, inspired by the innovative spirit of the adventurers and aeronauts of who have appeared at Alexandra Palace over the years. Four winners were selected and their designs brought to life and will be displayed in the Creativity Pavilion until 24 March.
