House of Vans London is set to re-open its doors to the public next month after a 15-month hiatus due to the pandemic.
Reopening on November 4th, it kicks off with a mental health charity Ben Raemers Foundation event in partnership with TV show producer Vice.
The Ben Raemers Foundation aims to end the stigma that often clouds issues of mental health within the skateboarding community.
VICE’s new documentary series ‘Skating and Talking’, which profiles the life and legacy of Ben Raemers, will be screened in the House of Vans’ 100 seat cinema, followed by a panel discussion and skate jam.
There will also be an exclusive ’10-years of House of Vans’ exhibition, featuring memorabilia, images, and posters commemorating the last decade of location.
On November 5th, the two-day UK music documentary festival curated by Doc’n Roll will return alongside a selection of the country’s best music documentaries.
Doc’n Roll will present a specially curated night of short films and Q&A panel discussions with a selection of the featured filmmakers. The second Doc’n Roll instalment is on 12th November 2021.
Popular programmes such as Skate Skool and Open Skate will also return on November 5th.
Meanwhile, The House of Vans Community Market will also return in collaboration with Land Makers Market on November 27 and December 4 in time for the festive season.
