  • Event Overview
    • Never Forget

      Never Forget is a site-specific performance installation created by Geraldine Pilgrim Performance Company which commemorates the 17,000 “enemy alien” internees incarcerated in Alexandra Palace during the First World War. After the 1915 sinking of the Lusitania, Alexandra Palace turned from a place of shelter and security- a haven for Belgian refugees- to a place of captivity for people of German, Austrian, Hungarian and Turkish origin.

      Never Forget is inspired not only by the history of the Alexandra Palace Internment camp but also the current situation of increasing fear of the unknown and the dreamlike images of the graphic novel The Arrival, by Shaun Tan, a migrant story of survival and hope.

      Never Forget takes place over the weekend of August 31st and September 1st. This performance uses installation, sound, light and projection with live performance, involving over 100 participants, this innovative journey around Alexandra Palace, including previously unseen spaces, ends with a lasting impression of hope.

      Please be advised absolutely no latecomers will be admitted to this performance. Please meet at the East Court no later than 15 min before the performance time where you will be accompanied to the performance. Please arrive with your ticket at hand ready to be scanned.

      Dress comfortably for walking, some of the performance takes place outside and will take place in all weather. This performance requires audiences to stand or walk through the entire 60 minutes’ and the route is not step-free. The performance is not fully accessible.
