Pimlico by Gaslight


CMCI’s Dr Jo Entwistle invites you to a night talk and walk to see Pimlico by gaslight. It’s part of her Configuring Light research projectand part of the Inside Out festival in October. Jo explains that public street lights play a fundamental role in our experience of the city at night yet we rarely notice street lights themselves – the lighting masts or  ‘furniture’ –  or the qualities of the lights themselves.

It all begins at Pimlico library on Weds 21 October at 7.30pm and takes in the working gas lights of Pimlico (much of which was never electrified). Pimlico is an area of London within the City of Westminster, fondly depicted in the 1949 Ealing Comedy “Passport to Pimlico”.
