Battersea Power House takes shape

Battersea Power House takes shape

One of London’s biggest new event venues is taking shape at Battersea Power Station. Jessica Newman talks to the people behind it

“My first concert was Pink Floyd in Montreal and pigs were flying through the air,” recalls Debra Ward, managing director of events company Camm & Hooper.

“Now I’m standing here next to Battersea Power Station with goose bumps, living my 16-year-old self’s dream.”

Ward is referring to one of the most iconic album covers of all time – Pink Floyd’s 1977 release Animals, which featured a giant inflatable pig floating above Battersea Power Station.

Last month, Camm & Hooper was appointed by Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) to deliver events at the developer’s new events space, Battersea Power House, which sits smack bang in the heart of the iconic site.

Property Week caught up with Ward and Andrew Hilston, head of phase two and leasing at BPSDC, to get the lowdown on the capital’s new entertainment venue.
