King’s Cross Pond Club Events

A programme of talks, tours, workshops and events centred around the new natural bathing pond at King's Cross

Posted: Tuesday 24th March 2015

Of Soil and Water: King’s Cross Pond Club is a new art installation in the form of a natural bathing pond, right in the middle of the King’s Cross development site.

The 40 metre long pond will open later this spring, and the public will be able to officially ‘bathe in art’.

While we wait for the warmer weather to arrive, we would like to invite you to attend a programme of talks and events. The events use King’s Cross Pond Club as a base to open up conversations about different topics  including sustainability and the importance of green space in the city, history and art.

Many of the events include a visit to the pond to see the installation under development. Most of the events are free, but pre-booking is essential. Click on the links below to find out more and reserve your slot.
