Ballin’ in London!

I have a spot of adult-only fun for you to get stuck in to!

There are only a few rules;

1. You have to be a self confessed baller.

And here are the rest:

If you think you can stick to those, whip off your shoes baby!

Doesn’t that look tempting?

It’s all yours.

Don’t be shy, go for a good ol’ leap!

But look out, it might be deeper than you think!

Yep, it’s a gallery sized, grown up, gloriously white, ball pit.

For all your frolicking needs!

“JUMP IN!” is an interactive art installation “that promotes the transformative power of play.”

It’s all about having fun and bringing out your childlike, creative side.

Something we had absolutely no problem getting on board with!

Commissioned by founding partner of Pearlfisher, Karen Welman.

There are over 80,000 balls and anyone is welcome to play with them.

What are you waiting for?

Dive in!

(Don’t actually dive, you’ll break something. I ended up with a pack of frozen peas resting on my knee for the rest of the evening.

…Totally worth it.)

But you can swim, crawl and tunnel your way around the space.

Or just lay back and enjoy the feeling, it’s surprisingly relaxing!

Especially if you go in the evening when they turn the lights out.

The more you wriggle around, the more balls will start to light up and glow.

Gotta catch ’em all!

Play until you’re exhausted! It’s better than any gym workout!

There’s no entrance fee, but everyone who visits is encouraged to donate to Right To Play.

“Right To Play uses the power of sport and play to transform the lives of over one million children every week across Latin America, Africa and Asia. They work in some of the most disadvantaged communities to provide an education, teach vital health skills and promote peaceful communities.”

So you can feel good while having your fun!

As far as I’m concerned it’s the best pop up of the year.

Find them at: Pearlfisher Gallery: 50 Brook Green, W6 7BJ

Opening times: Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm until Friday 13th February.

Bookings: Email jumpin@pearlfisher.com to book your slot.

You’ll know you have the right place by the fairy-lights.

Tell a friend immediately and go whenever you can.

Trust me, you’ll have a ball!

      Girl after my own heart, Laura!

  • This looks incredible. The actual dream for any major baller.
    Will hope they setup in Glasgow.
    I love the minimalistic white as well although having some neon would be cool!

      Can’t beat a flash of neon!

  • ninegrandstudent

    Oh wow, this looks amazing fun! Your hair is looking particularly stunning at the moment Rosie! X

    • Rosie

      Thank you! I’m booked in for a cut actually, it’s getting a little too much to handle! xx

  • OMG! This is awesome, wish they would also open during the weekend so I could visit! It’s clear that you had some serious fun haha

      I know, me too!
      It’s in their offices so I can see why they close on Fridays, but I’m sure they could convince someone to hang out one weekend?!

  • My inner child (which is basically just normal me) is screaming at this opportunity! Ball pits are pretty much the greatest invention of all time. I’ve always said they should design soft play areas for adults!

    • Rosie

      I say this all the time!! It would be such good exercise too! x

  • This looks such fun. There seems to be lots more interactive installations popping up over the last few months – I’m very pleased about this.

    • Rosie

      I am all over interactive installations! I love anything I can play with… the science museum was pretty much my favourite place as a kid! x

  • Sofie-Eliza Price

    Rosie, this is perhaps the best thing I have ever seen! I’ve already shared it on Facebook to see if anyone wants to come have a ball with me 🙂 Thanks so much.

    • Rosie

      Good thinking Sofie-E! Lemme know if you go! x

  • This looks so much fun! I am definitely going to go, for a great cause too!

    xo, S

    check out my personal and travel blog ♥

    • Rosie

      Tag me on Insta if you check it out S! I’d love to see! x

  • OMG! This looks such a hoot! So fab that the balls light up as well. Love the shot of you holding the lit ball Rosie.

    Hugs Adele xoxo

    • Rosie

      Such a brilliant idea!

  • Courtney

    Now if only pizza were included it would be like a grown-up version of Chuck E. Cheese!!

    • Rosie

      Ermaghad that would be the best restaurant idea ever!

  • Oh wow! This looks like so much fun, I’d love to try this out! I’ll have to add this to my neverending list of things to do next time I’m in London.

    Tessa at Bramble & Thorn

  • OMG this place looks like so much fun! I couldn’t believe it when I saw the picture of you diving right in lol (hope your knee is OK though, who knew ball pits were so dangerous ;).

  • Oh my goodness!! The little kid inside me who still wants to play in the Ikea ball pen is jumping up and down in excitement over this. Looks *amazing*!! xxx

  • Looks like literally the most fun an adult could have!

    Lots of love,

  • Rebecca Serra

    Too bad half the people in London who work won’t be able to experience it, looks amazing.

    • Rosie

      I know!
      Apparently people have been going for meetings in the pit, which is just brilliant! I’m sure if enough people ask for a weekend spot they’d give in and host one, surely?

  • I NEED TO GO THERE NOW!! AHHHHH. I LOVE ME SOME BALLS!!

  • Oh my oh my oh my.
    Everything in me thinks this is the best idea ever and just absolutely amazing.
    This is just the best.

  • Now THIS looks much more fun than the play areas of my childhood – much prettier and cleaner! I love the light up effect, if I get down to London by then I might have to scout it out 🙂

  • Ooooh I love these kinds of things!! So often we get caught up in the day-to-day responsibilities of being an adult that we forget what it’s like to be childishly gleeful.

    I recently went on a date night with my husband to a similar place. An indoor trampoline park!! So fun!

    How awesome is that! Your pictures look like the place is a royal play pin, and I want in! Adults should let the children in us come out more often, can you imagine the amount of stress that would reduce? Thank for sharing, LOVE IT!

  • This installation looks amazing! How much fun do you make it look too!? Gorgeous post!

    I was thinking about buying a mini ball pool for my baby son. I would happily get one of these installed at home if I could! loved the photos on your post. This activity should be mandatory for every adult! http://www.alongcamejay.com

  • Incredi-ball!
    I am going to have to roll on down!

  • That looks like so much fun and I love the fact that it helps such a great cause!

    This looks like such a blast! I hope the installation travels, or at least more artists and spaces pick up on the idea. The glowing night-time shots look super zen.

  • !!! Not being allowed to play in ball pits any more is probably the WORST thing about being an adult – I am beside myself that this exists!! It’s at the top of the list for my next visit to London… thanks!

  • It looks so fun, I love to go there. If only I lived closer :] x
