House of Vans London Presents
20 Years of Death Skateboards and Into the Void Premiere
Saturday 8th December 2018 / 18:00 – 01:00
House of Vans are delighted to announce that bastion of UK skateboarding, Death Skateboards are celebrating their 20-year anniversary under their arches.
The physical manifestation of the culture and creativity at the heart of the Vans brand, House of Vans fosters a rich heritage strongly committed to art, street culture, music and action sports.
Surviving two decades in skateboarding is no mean feat, like Vans, Death have done so by staying true to their roots. Established in 1998 by Nick Orecchio out of his bedroom in Harrow, Death provide a refreshing alternative to mainstream skateboarding.
In ode to Death’s infamous House of Doom, House of Vans have built a brand-new mini ramp in their tunnel three which will play host to a cash for tricks jam, accompanied by live bands playing in front on the main stage. House of Vans’ gallery space will contain a 20 years of Death exhibition and Death OG, Dan Cates will have his own space dedicated to his sideways take on skateboarding, “The Mind of Cates”. The street section is being turned into a pop-up cinema which will premiere Death’s fourth and latest full-length video “Into the Void”.
This extremely special event at House of Vans will be free to the public, with no booking required (entry to the venue is subject to capacity and Sign Ups for the mini ramp jam will be on a first come first served basis).
Mini Ramp Jam: 20:00
Premiere of “Into the Void”: 21:00
