The richly decorated Victorian Leadenhall Market in the City of London is being filled with neon lighting from Gods Own Junkyard later this month.
Walthamstow based Gods Own Junkyard has worked on film sets for over 40 years and the exhibition will include signage highlights from Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut, Judge Dredd, Batman, Tomb Raider, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Dark Knight.
The illuminated neon displays will be switched on daily from Wednesday 26th May until the end of July.
Test installation by Gods Own Junkyard
In addition, a walk-in installation and information hub will also be open to the public from 11.30am to 7.30pm on Wednesdays to Saturdays, with selected other pieces from Gods Own Junkyard available to purchase.
Further events including guided tours and talks will also be announced in June and July, once government restrictions are fully relaxed from no sooner than 21st June.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
