Great British cultural icon Sir Elton John’s grandstand performance was the highlight as developers of Battersea Power Station threw their first annual party.
Malaysian owners Sp Setia threw the exclusive bash to celebrate the beginning of the next phase of regenerating the imposing Thames-side structure last night.
Celebrities mixed with businessmen and power station employees before being treated to performances from Tom Odell, and Sir Elton in an event space set up within the power station itself.
Everyone wanted a picture of the music legend
Battersea Power Station, built in the 1930’s, has laid empty since 1983, but with work progressing at a pace, could be completely redeveloped into flats with the next couple of years.
The first phase of work began last year and today, developers officially launched phase two, with 254 homes on the site becoming available to purchase.
Prices start at £800,000, progressing to £4m.
During the five hours party, guests including Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, and GB diver Tom Daley enjoyed the live music before watching a light show projected onto the imposing Art Deco building.
Guests were also invited to enter a silent auction of extravagant prizes, and there was a Boodles necklace worth £12K donated by the famous jewellers auctioned off, all in aid of Wandsworth-based charities, STORM, Battersea Summer Scheme, Caius House, and neighbours Battersea Cats and Dogs Home.
