Denise Waterman ended her recent tour of Nine Elms with a magical umbrella processiona along the Thames... here's a quick peek at just one of the area's many cultural events against a stunning backdrop.
As part of a longer report looking at developments in the Nine Elms area of Wandsworth, Alastair Greener was given an exclusive interview with Courtney Austrian from the new American Embassy. Here's a short excerpt from that interview...
Our travel and transport correspondent joined Wandsworth Council Leader Ravi Govindia and The Rt Hon Elizabeth Truss MP to witness the historic "breakthrough" moment for the new Northern Line extension. Boring machine "Amy" crunched through the last layer of rock at Kennington, connecting the two 3.2 km tunnels from Battersea Power Station, via Nine Elms.
Pia Jackson visits the Nine Elms regeneration area to see first hand how Wandsworth Council is working with local primary school children to get them interested in the changes going on around them and to excite their interest in the new arts and culture hub which has started to take shape.
The "Monster Soup" project, funded by the Wandsworth Council and the Battersea Power Station Foundation, uses puppet theatre to explore connections between the River Thames and local communities, culminating in a lantern puppet parade through the area’s changing landscape.
