The Industrial Revelation Eco-Festival is set to take place at the London Museum of Water and Steam on Sunday 9 October.

Part of Hounslow Council’s “Summer of Culture,” Industrial Revelation is a day long event for all the family featuring a special evening rock concert.

Since the start of the industrial revolution in the 19th Century, the rise of the machine has been held partly responsible for the increase in carbon emissions, the acceleration of climate warming as well as using up the Earth’s natural resources faster than they can grow back.

Inside the metal and stone structure of this fascinating museum, amongst the huge steam machines, some curious, organic, wooden sculptures have been appearing, as if trying to reclaim the territory on behalf of Mother Earth.

Visitors to the event will also be able to take part in extra activities including “Find the Artyfacts” Sculpture Trail, a “Take Part In Art” workshop and other local environmental activities.

For the Sculpture Trail all you need to do is pick up a copy of the Industrial Revelation leaflet, hunt round the museum and see if you can spot the wooden, environmental themed sculptures, created by sculptor and artist, Derek Pearce. Click on their QR codes to reveal their environmental messages and log your findings on your copy of the “Industrial Revelation” leaflet slip. When you have filled in your findings, enter your slip into the prize draw for a chance to win one of Derek Pearce’s exclusive sculptures.

Take Part In Art workshop enables you to find out how you feel about machines and our planet. You will be able to take part in this free art workshop, led by professional artist and instructor, Sangeeta, who will help you express your ideas on paper and create your own masterpiece.

Art workshops with Sangeeta

There are many environmental groups in west London, working towards improving habitats, cleaning up waterways, monitoring air quality and reducing waste. Find out ways you can reduce your negative impacts on the environment, how you can get involved with local groups and try some educational activities.

You will also be able to book your seat for a very special environmental edged, evening concert, featuring three rock bands, with “Son et Lumiere” lighting. Watch these huge machines light up to the environmental live music of Lemon Sharks, Ruby Dawn and the Kindred Spirit Band.

The Lemon Sharks of London are an Isleworth based band with roots in the alternative 80s music scene, They get feet tapping with reggae beats and a pinch of post punk. Their new single “Riverboat Ska” reflects their riverside lifestyle, while other songs, such as “Ghostland” and “Lemon Sharks” reveal their social and environmental conscience.

Ruby Dawn are Carola Baer’s hypnotic ambient post alternative rock band. They create a lush sound that weaves emotional intensity with captivating lyrical expressions, storytelling qualities, soundscape and emotive concerns.

Kindred Spirit Band is a five-piece, progressive, folk rock band, featuring vocals, guitars, flute and sax and bass and drums. They have performed at Liverpool’s famous “Cavern Club” and more recently, Cambridge Rock Festival. Their sound has been likened to “Fleetwood Mac”.
