The Festival of Britain’s 60th Anniversary starts this weekend on the Southbank Centre. The summer-long festival is packed with events and exhibitions including BCA’s own installations on Power and Production. BCA has collaborated with photographers and filmakers to celebrate British makers and inventors, and new ideas in production.
Black Country Atelier’s Eureka Britain installation, one of three by BCA at the Festival, features makers in their working environments:

Over the summer there will be a number of events marking the 60th anniversary of the original festival; including a “Power and Production weekend” in August curated by BCA – more on that to come! We’ll also be uploading new features/interviews with the inventors we met.
Drop by and see us at the Festival!
