the POP UP

With the arrival of spring, Battersea Power Station is hosting some exciting events over the next few weeks, kicking off with its Botanical Atelier pop-up where shoppers can have their fashion and homeware purchases personalised for free. The pop-up space, inspired by a cool new installation, has been designed by contemporary British artist Claire Luxton – known for her botanical-inspired artwork and unique installations – and MTArt Agency, which champions global talent. Across two weekends and on the evening of Thursday 9th May, the pop-up will be active in Turbine Hall A, decked out with foliage and plants, scented with Penhaligon’s ‘Halfeti’ fragrance, and accompanied by Claire’s original soundscapes. 

Shoppers can take a new purchase from Battersea Power Station’s selection of brands to the pop-up to have it embroidered with one of six bespoke nature-inspired motifs designed by Claire Luxton and embroidered by  Rosie Brain (Friday 4th May to Sunday 6th May), and  The Lost Girls (the evening of Thursday 9th May, as well as Friday 10th May to Sunday 12th May). All you need to do is show  your receipt (for items purchased between 4th and 12th May) to the team and choose a design*. Once you’ve finished shopping, head to Searcys Champagne Bar in Turbine Hall A to try the limited-edition ‘Field of Dreams’ cocktail, also created in collaboration with Claire. Find out more about the pop-up here.


You should also bookmark your calendar for Battersea Power Station’s first ever shopping event on Thursday 9th May. From 5pm to 8pm, the shopping destination will host a series of inspiring panel talks with fashion and beauty experts. Expect to hear from award-winning celebrity hair stylist Paul Edmonds, fashion stylist Katie Felstead, celebrity make-up artist Avia Solomon, and head of retail at Space NK, Charlie Evans. Each panel talk costs £10pp, with 50 seated tickets available for each event – so don't delay getting your friend involved. Ticket holders will also receive a goodie bag. Book yours here

Elsewhere, you can enjoy elevated in-store experiences, discounts and complimentary refreshments. Highlights include 15% OFF at Abercrombie & Fitch; personal styling sessions, canapes and complimentary English sparkling wine at ME+EM; free skin health checks at Kiehl's; in-store drinks and gifts with purchase at Jigsaw; body trio gifts with every purchase at MALIN+GOETZ; and complimentary in-store styling at Reiss. You can also expect 20% OFF at Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, sampling from brands like Jo Malone London, and other gifts with purchase at Hugo Boss, Curated Makers, Venchi and more. 


There’s also a cool new art installation to see inside the historic Power Station. Claire Luxton and MTArt Agency’s installation ‘Field of Dreams’ will be on display in Turbine Hall A from Monday 29th April. The floral and botanical-inspired artwork explores the connection between nature, mental health, and self-awareness with a towering 12-metre structure. You’ll also see 33 layers of intricately digitally printed fabric, which both reveal and hide layers of the artwork. Luxury florist Moyses Stevens, which has a shop and flower school at Battersea Power Station, has supplied the botanicals used in the installation – so we’re expecting good things. You can find out more about the installation here.

Elsewhere, diners can enjoy noodles and stuffed bao buns over at BAO,  gourmet kebabs from Le Bab, and fresh pasta at Noci – to mention a few.
