King’s Cross Becomes London Design District

The London Design Festival has returned to King’s Cross for another year, this time bigger and better than ever before! In the past the LDF has come to Granary Square, recognising King’s Cross as a centre for Design and Architecture in London. For LDF 2019, however, the involvement of King’s Cross in the Festival has expanded, with King’s Cross becoming the LDF’s very first Design District. Through this, the area has hosted a number of exhibits and events, including displays as part of London Fashion Week.

Bradford Mirror Pool Reopens

Thanks to the fantastic work of our Maintenance team, the Bradford Mirror Pool fountains have been turned back on after a water flow problem cause them to be nonoperational throughout July. The repair has been completed ahead of schedule, with only the central jet remaining to be tackled.

While the Mirror Pool was turned off, Bradford Council turned the City Park into a beach and used the space for events as part of their summer science festival. While these were both hugely popular, the people of Bradford have made their delight at the return of the water very much known through social media! Thank you, Bradford, for your patience and enthusiasm!
