A new community pavilion at Edmonton Green is set to host a summer programme of arts, culture and workshops following its recent opening.

Pavilion on The Green, located near Edmonton Green Station, was co-designed by the local community and architect Fisher Cheng. It is the fourth of five local ‘culture spaces’ that Enfield Council is creating in town centres across the borough. Each of these spaces is designed to support and invest in Enfield’s high streets by hosting arts, culture and community events.

Future plans for the development of The Green include improvements to the open space and the possible restoration of the railway arches, if funding is secured. The Pavilion on The Green is a temporary structure that is expected to remain in place for three years.

Throughout the summer, the pavilion hosts a range of cultural and community activities, including the Untold Edmonton Festival, which celebrates and explores Edmonton’s rich and diverse history, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Chinelo Anyanwu, Enfield City Council’s Executive Member for Environment, Culture and Public Spaces, said: “The Pavilion on The Green will be a showcase for Edmonton’s extraordinary social and cultural diversity and I look forward to a packed summer programme, thanks to the active involvement of the community.

“This initiative is part of a longer-term ambition to create cultural spaces and activities in all our city centres that focus on local culture, learning and wellbeing and that are accessible to all.”

Pavilion on The Green is designed as an open structure without walls and consists of a covered area of ​​approximately 40 m² to host performances and community activities. The roof is open but integrates a shade system to provide cover in the summer. Lighting and an electricity point are provided to support a wide range of events at any time of the day.

Planned future activities include Zumba with Unite in Fitness; Wellbeing Walk with Better; Freeflow Yoga with Yoga Rocks; Interactive Concert with London Sinfonietta; Inclusive Theatre Workshops by Face Front Inclusive Theatre and more.

Other cultural centres supported by the council include the recently refurbished Dugdale Arts Centre in Enfield Town, the Fore Street Living Room Library in Angel Edmonton and the Arbeit Studios exhibition space in Palmers Green. A number of early cultural interventions are planned for Southgate as part of the development of a long-term vision for the town centre.
