West Euston Partnership, Fantasy High Street and Old Diorama Arts Centre present:
A free one day family event using arts to celebrate 40 years of arts, architecture and community life in Euston and King’s Cross.
The Cloud Nine Festival is returning to Cumberland Market after the highly successful inaugural festival on the site last year. Created and delivered by a partnership of three local organisations: West Euston Partnership, Fantasy High Street and Old Diorama Arts Centre, the festival will once again offer a day of free arts activities, performances and workshops to local residents and other members of the community.
2017 marks an important anniversary for many local organisations, including West Euston Partnership which will be celebrating its 25th birthday and Diorama Arts Centre which will be turning 35 years old. So Cloud Nine’s theme this year is celebrating local heritage, the community and the changing face of Euston and King’s Cross over the last 40 years. Interactive art installations will invite visitors to share stories about where they live and play games; our free arts and crafts workshops will run throughout the event and are suitable for families and children of all ages and our performance stage will include dance and music from local community groups. There will also be hot and cold food, a football tournament and local organisations will provide a range of interactive stalls remembering the past, cherishing the present and imagining what the future of our community could look like.

Knowledge Quarter partner Bennetts Associates will be running a Building Tomorrow workshop – an interactive installation tent where children can build houses and neighbourhoods with Lego blocks and design future communities.
