The VPE committee are excited to see you again for an afternoon of games, face-painting, music and conversation. For kids and adults of all ages.
We’ll have live music from VPE’s The Kimberleys, plus we’ll bring out the barbecue, and provide food and soft drinks for all.

As part of Open City’s film series VPE residents Phineas (director of Open City) and Pete talk about living on the estate and how the buildings and landscape work to create a pleasant living environment.
Thanks to Rob from Westcombe Court for sharing this video of the estate in its early days. German guests are taken on a local tour as a part of the London Borough of Greenwich’s Civic Week in 1966. The estate is featured from 2:40 to 3:36.
Designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and completed in 1963, Vanbrugh Park Estate is set on seven acres with a mixture of dwelling types: an eight-storey tower block with 64 flats, low-rise terraced houses, and maisonettes arranged over garages
