Open Arms event will not go ahead

This event application has been withdrawn. The community’s voices have been heard.

We have heard from Event Lambeth that the Open Arms event will not take place in Ruskin Park this summer. The organisers have withdrawn their application for their event and for licensing. The plans ultimately weren’t suitable for Ruskin Park. The strength of feelings expressed by residents, councillors and the Friends of Ruskin Park was undoubtedly a major factor in this outcome. Thank you again to everyone who took the trouble to express their views.

We look forward to a great summer when people can fully enjoy Ruskin Park’s green open space with an appropriate balance of different activities.
