Bringing the Earls Court site back to life this summer

Through many conversations over the past year we have heard your desire to see the Earls Court development site, closed off for far too long, opened up. We’ve heard you’d like to see things like food markets, theatre, music and other activities take place and so in response to what you’ve said, we’re excited to let you know about what we have been busy working on bringing to the site this summer.

Safety is our top priority, and whilst the plans have social distancing built in, they remain contingent on the latest guidelines and solving the tricky logistics of bringing these projects forward, including securing planning permission for these temporary events.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back, celebrating Earls Court’s cultural heritage and vitality with a summer of fun!

We will be hosting a virtual webinar on Monday 26th April from 6.30pm to 7.30pm to discuss our summer plans in more detail and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you have.

Activating spaces and places

The London Wonderground at Earls Court

World-leading live entertainment company Underbelly are coming to Earls Court this summer (subject to planning and licensing approval). Underbelly have been present at the world-renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 2000, and for the last 11 years have run Underbelly Festival on the Southbank, as well as producing Christmas in Leicester Square, West End Live and Pride in London. Underbelly will be bringing you a range of comedy, circus and theatre all taking place in the famous upside-down cow and big top, alongside vintage rides, a beach, independent street food traders, summer drinks, a bandstand featuring local musicians and much, much more. The London Wonderground will run from July to September on the site formerly home to Earls Court 2, accessed via Empress Place. There will be something for everyone this summer at Earls Court!

A new public space opposite Earl’s Court Underground Station

We are also opening up part of the long-closed site on Warwick Road, where the former entrance to the Exhibition Centre was. We aim to create a temporary space for people to enjoy. We’re a proud sponsor of the Kensington & Chelsea Festival who are working with Underbelly to bring an exciting art installation to mark this space. We will be inviting ideas from the community over the summer on the subsequent plans for this space.

The return of The Prince and West Brompton Crossing

Our range of shops and places to eat and drink at West Brompton Crossing and The Prince have re-opened. Come down and visit London’s biggest pub garden with some of the best independent eateries in the city, alongside our carefully curated independent retailers, artists and artisans who look forward to welcoming you back.
