It’s about to celebrate its millennium (we know, amazing right – 1,000 years as a market!) and is inviting visitors to join in the fun by marking the occasion literally with their feet. 

In an event entitled Footsteps in Time, Borough Market wants members of the public to create a colourful trail of footprints at its three main entrances. Shoppers will walk through a different colour of eco-friendly wash-away paint, and, as they walk around the market, they will leave behind thousands of interlacing footprints – creating a vast and rapidly evolving work of art.

The process will be filmed from above to create a time-lapse video clip.

At the end of the day the paint will be washed away, taking the streets of the Market back to their original state

When: Saturday 20 September – all day

Where: Borough Market, London SE1
