The venue has appeared in Riverside Gardens and the Town Pier over the summer

Students have helped bring in visitors to a pop-up lighthouse hosting a number of events in Erith.

The pop-up venue was first set up in Riverside Gardens in August before it was moved to the Town Pier at the start of the month.

The venue has since hosted a garden party as well as music and dance events, temporary restaurants and arts and craft workshops.

To help promote the lighthouse online, community arts group The Exchange, approached London South East Colleges’ Bexley Campus in the town to run a social media campaign while producing digital artwork and images.

Emanuela Amponsah, 19 and from Sidcup, said: “The work has been very interesting and engaging and a real eye-opener for the whole team. To work with proper clients is very good experience and keeps you disciplined and responsive. We are now putting our material together to create a promo video about the lighthouse.”

Curriculum manager, Stuart Blackmore said: “I think that providing exposure to real employers with professional expectations ultimately reinforces what students learn in class and gives them knowledge and insight.”
