Long Live Southbank Book

Long Live Southbank documents the history and culture of this iconic London landmark, which was threatened by a £120 million redevelopment, announced in March 2013. The Southbank Centre proposed designs to transform the Southbank Undercroft skate park into retail units, relocating the revered and popular skate spot further down the river, beneath the Hungerford Bridge. Long Live Southbank was produced in conjunction with the campaign, the success of which was celebrated in September of 2014, when it was announced that the undercroft had been saved.

The undercroft is a treasured space that has been home to skateboarders, BMX riders and graffiti artists for the last 40 years. Long Live Southbank documents this history through originally commissioned photography and a wealth of archival images donated via the campaign’s website.These have been divided into chapters exploring and celebrating the history, architecture, culture and community that has evolved within this iconic space.

Long Live Southbank is a non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting the Southbank Undercroft from redevelopment and preserving the iconic home of the city’s skateboarders, BMXers and artists for generations to come.
