Not doing much this weekend, or are you just looking for the newest and funkiest cultural attraction in town? Well, you need look no further: head down to The Filling Station in King’s Cross. Set inside a former BP petrol station, this amazing cultural space features a beautiful canal-side public space and pop-up restaurant, but this new hotspot’s fresh feel isn’t the only reason you should head there. This week it will be playing host to the Vauxhall Ampera x Super/Collider Science Weekend.
Inspired by the launch of the Vauxhall Ampera, representing Vauxhall’s latest stylish offering in the world of electric cars, the Weekend has renewable energy at its heart. Showcasing four pioneering art installations by designer Patrick Stevenson-Keating accompanied by three days of experimentation and events, the Vauxhall Ampera x Super/Collider Science Weekend is going to be a uniquely special attraction.
…even food lovers will enjoy the night…
If technology is more you than art then you’re going to love the exhibits on hydrogen fuel cell racing, personal rapid transport pod demo, catalytic clothing (which cleans the air around you), urban farming and a nightly laser fusion light show. There’s going to be something for everyone here; even food lovers will enjoy the night with Homeslice pizza, proseco on tap and slushy margheritas at the Filling Station bar.
The art is curated by Super/Collider founder, Chris Hatherhill (former journalist for Dazed & Confused and Vice). Super/Collider‘s mission is to find new ways of talking about science; they set up events such as weekly science nights with a host of creatives and DJs or star gazing on the roof of Shoreditch House.
