Jeremy Deller’s inflatable Stonehenge comes to Hampstead Heath

A life-size bouncy castle replica of Stonehenge popped up on Hampstead Heath yesterday (Wednesday, August 1).

The artwork, Sacrilege, by artist Jeremy Deller, attracted queues of hundreds of children.

The sculpture will be moving around the capital during the Olympic Games as part of the London 2012 Festival.

Jeremy Simons, chairman of the City of London Corporation’s Hampstead Heath Management Committee, said: “Hampstead Heath has always been about enjoying oneself – whether it’s by walking, running swimming or, in this case, bouncing.

“I’m delighted to welcome artist Jeremy Deller’s interactive piece and credit goes to our leisure and events team for making this happen.”

The inflatable Stonehenge was on the Heath for one day only and it was free to use.

It will also visit other sites including Clapham Common, Crystal Palace Park and Alexandra Palace before the end of the Games.
