The artworks are part of a free festival which will be held this weekend to launch the opening of the Park.

The gardens, which have been designed to transform an area of wasteland in the Docklands, will provide the setting for a weekend of music, dance and a huge pyrotechnics show.

The festival will be held on Saturday June 30 and Sunday July 1, from 1-11pm. London Pleasure Gardens are situated opposite Pontoon Dock DLR station.
