The arches and pavements of the Crystal Palace Subway were made available to the public on 20th and 21st September 2015, as part of the annual Open House Weekend that ran across the whole UK.
For the second year running, I helped staff the art stall/shop/display alongside. Last year we were in the ‘Rusty Laptop’ alongside a heritage exhibition, but this time it was the edge of the park for us.
Luckily the weather was very kind. To celebrate, I produced a new print of the Subway that seemed to be pretty popular.
Some of the other artists had also created new items to buy from the pop-up gift shop.

The team (of volunteers) behind the Subway have launched a fundraising campaign to secure the £11000 needed to install a gate and make the structure accessible on a regular basis. To make a donation, please visit https://www.gofundme.com/cpsubway
