Budding theatre makers, historians, producers, designers and performers! The Cheltenham Estate, the iconic North Kensington estate that includes the Grade II* listed Trellick Tower and Edenham Way will be brought to life by SPID Theatre with a series of interactive and performative guided tours – and they are looking for 13-25 year olds to get involved.

Reimagining Goldfinger, celebrates Erno Goldfinger’s North Kensington design, which celebrates its 50th birthday this year and has come to symbolise the Brutalist movement. Commissioned by London County Council, the estate replaced the substandard late 19th century housing, and Reimagining Goldfinger aims to look at the impact of the architecture on the social lives of the community who have lived there.

The sessions to prepare these performative tours will take place on Saturdays starting from March 4, and ending with the performative tour on the 27th of May, and take place every week excluding the 15th of April.

The project is part of a year-long intergenerational heritage project, in collaboration with the Victoria & Albert Museum and the 20th Century Society.
