Making Vauxhall safe and inclusive
In June, #VauxhAllNight celebrated the area’s LGBTQ+ communities with Pride Month events. The London Queer Mart activated one of Arch Co’s vacant arches on Goding Street with over 30 LGBTQ+ creatives and saw 500 visitors.
The Vauxhall City Farm held its first-ever Pride celebrations, with guests of all ages enjoying performer-led farm tours, live music from LGBTQ+ artists and a community barbecue. And over 1,000 revellers took over the Albert Embankment foot tunnel to close out Pride Night with the Royal Vauxhall Tavern’s DJs.
These events are already having a positive effect on the area – 98% of guests surveyed said the events helped them feel positive about the local area, and 99% said they would come back to the area for a similar event.
