British Modernism Meets Underground

Date: Saturday 30 July 2016 SOLD OUT
Time: 14:00 to 17:00
Location: Meeting point information will be sent out with tickets
Price: Adults £10; Concessions £8

SOLD OUT

Architect Charles Holden was commissioned by London Underground in the early 1930s to design a number of stations for the Piccadilly line. Widely regarded as fine examples of British Modernism, his tour explores the Holden style, looking at how all aspects of a busy Tube station were dealt with by design. Stations visited include Sudbury Town, Alperton, Park Royal and Acton Town. The tour also includes a brief excursion into the 1920s and 30s Hanger Hill (Haymills) estate near Park Royal. Meeting point information will be sent out with tickets.

Frank Pick Lecture Series

Frank Pick - the man who commissioned some of the most recognisable icons of London Underground’s identity; the Johnston typeface, Holden stations, the roundel and Harry Beck’s map to name but a few. As part of the commemorations marking the 75th anniversary of his death, we are hosting a series of three talks about the man behind the designs recognised the world over.

Help Us Remember Frank Pick: the Forgotten Genius of the London Underground

From the 12 September to 10 October London Transport Museum is running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to help secure Frank Pick’s iconic legacy. By pledging as little as £3 lovers of London and good design can help us complete Pick’s memorial at Piccadilly Circus Underground station, an art installation designed by award winning Langlands & Bell.

We’re offering a range of rewards to say an enormous thank you to all our Indiegogo supporters, including curator led tours of the Museum’s collection and the chance to get up close to and own one of our visionary poster prints from the heyday of the London Underground.

To learn more about Frank Pick or to find out more about our fantastic prizes please subscribe to our newsletter. Our campaign will go live on Indiegogo on 12 September 2016.
