About this event

Join us for a special Open Sunday as Pitzhanger opens its doors to the community for Open City’s Open House Festival, a two-week celebration of London’s housing, architecture, and neighbourhoods.

Art Workshop

On the final day of Rana Begum’s Dappled Light, artist Sam van Strien will be leading a drop-in art activity for all ages in which participants will create their own artworks inspired by the themes of light and colour in the exhibition.

Storytelling

Storyteller Alim Kamara from Storie Storie will give performances at 11am and 12pm in the manor’s beautiful Georgian Eating Room. Alim Kamara is a British-Sierra Leonean rapper and storyteller. As a child living in Sierra Leone, Alim would listen to Djelis (storytellers), admiring the way they weaved lessons through their tales. Stories quickly became central to his life, and when he moved to London and started his music career, he used this same technique to achieve number one singles in both Sierra Leone and Nigeria.

He established Storie Storie to share the traditional Sierra-Leonean folk tales of his childhood in the UK. Through the organisation, he performs and runs workshops through schools, businesses and festivals.

Alim and his inspirational speakers share cultural and life stories that demonstrate success, disappointments, persistence and hard work. They share the tools that empower listeners to feel happy, express themselves and succeed.

Children’s trails available in the Manor for visitors 5+ including Imagined Spaces, our new Spotters’ Trail, Architect’s Apprentice and Plants at Pitzhanger. Collect a reward from the front desk after completing yours!
