If, like Pharrell, you feel as happy as a room without a roof, get down to Deptford and tell Leeds-based artists Invisible Flock all about it. From Monday the crafty collective will be setting up their Bring the Happy shop in Deptford Lounge to gather up all your happy memories. 

Invisible Flock have spent the last four years touring Bring the Happy around the UK, capturing over 3,000 jubilant reminiscences, and now they’re coming to the capital. Londoners have three weeks to visit them, write down a memory, score it on a level of 1-10 and place it on the group’s 3D map.

People’s stories will also be posted on their digital map, where you can add your own from home if you can’t make it down to Deptford before September 5.

Once the run is over, Invisible Flock have three nights of celebrations planned at The Albany, where they’ll explain their concept, share the work so far and party hard with six-piece band Hope & Social, who’ll be performing raucous tunes inspired by London’s memories.

Mapping hours:
Tue: 11am-5pm
Wed: 2pm-8pm
Thu: 11am-5pm
Fri: 11am-4pm and 7pm-9pm
Sat: 11am-4pm

Performances at The Albany run Sep 11-13, 7.30pm; £12, £10 concs.

It’s about time London got some joy – apparently it’s the least perky place in Britain! Eek. See where else made the top ten unhappiest areas to live.
