Katherine Low Settlement
Battersea High Street, SW11 3HP

Battersea Odyssey

To belong to a place you've got to live it, smell it, breathe it

Come with us on an interactive journey that will take you all around the Katherine Low Settlement, but miles beyond. Immerse yourself in real stories of Battersea life.....and maybe share your own!

Battersea Odyssey is an immersive promenade show which has been created specifically for the Wandsworth Arts Festival.

Through eighteen months of workshops and interviews, Lightbox has uncovered hundreds of untold stories of life in Battersea during our Battersea Stories outreach project.

These accounts which span the last century will be woven together and presented, verbatim, by actors located all over the quirky and historic building of Katherine Low Settlement.
