The Cockpit Jubilee is a free, open access, creative, community bunting project celebrating place. Join us in our bunting room at the Cockpit Summer Festival to create your own flag and get inspiration from our Makers as they drop in throughout the day. All materials will be provided, the rooms are small so it will be first come first served, we will be providing templates to take away if you cannot stay.
The Cockpit Jubilee is funded by the Arts Council’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund administered by the London Community Foundation.
To access the event, book your free ticket to the Cockpit Summer Festival and Open Studios, and drop into our bunting rooms.
Bunting room opening times:
Bloomsbury Saturday – 12.30pm – 4.30pm
Bloomsbury Sunday – 12.30pm – 4.30pm
We will be working with photographer Ope Odueyungbo and local musicians at each event.
We are working with our local communities, schools and the public to craft bunting that will wind around our buildings. Once you’ve completed your flag, head around the building to see who else has taken part and enjoy the Cockpit Summer Festival.
There will be a café and there are toilets on site.
Can’t wait? Pick up a template using the link below and bring your flag along.
If you don’t have a printer, follow the link below for instructions using anything that’s A4 size.
