Award-winning Daniel Lobb and arts-based educational charity The House of Fairy Tales have come together to create the fabulous Breaker’s Yard at Sutton House.
Formerly a car breakers yard, the site is now a wonderland of installations and hidden spaces connected by sinuous brick paths. Elements from its recent history are incorporated within the Yard including upcycled vehicles, a car tyres sandpit, a bus greenhouse and bespoke metal gates that incorporate toy cars donated by celebrities, well-known artists and local people.
With support from the London Project, a brand new exhibition space opens at the historic site of Grade I listed Lawn Road Flats in North London.
