Rogue’s very first meet as a team was at Southbank’s Undercroft on a warm day in March 2005 (see pictures above). The spot which has a place unrivaled in UK skateboarding history is pretty much regarded as the heart of British Skateboarding and has been used by skaters since the 70’s.
Although there have been whispers about The Undercroft closing for many years, it wasn’t until recently when The Southbank Centre made public their plans for the ‘Festival Wing’, for those whispers to become real. The proposed changes will see users of The Undercroft being relocated to Hungerford Bridge, a site The Southbank Centre say they are willing to offer permanent infrastructure investment for. The new spot would not be a purpose built skate park but a found space.
There have been mixed feelings to the announcement, on the one hand The Undercroft is a space that is tired – the offer of a secure permanent new site with new design possibilities does seem attractive – but at what cost? Jenna has joined The Undercroft Programming and Events Opportunities Group and has written and article for Coven Magazine about how things currently stand. Read it HERE
