COVID-19 Update - Wednesday 15th July
Leake Street Arches remains open to members of the public. Steps have been taken to ensure the safety of those using the tunnel, including relevant signage, a one way system and an increased cleaning schedule. These measures are being reviewed regularly in line with the latest guidance. LCR tenants that have restarted trading, including Mamuśka! and Banh Bao Brothers, are also adhering to Government guidelines on social distancing and cleanliness. The #LeakeStreetLIVE Summer Programme is primarily virtual, but in-person events are planned for August, subject to any future Government restrictions in response to Covid-19. Every participating event organiser is required to complete a thorough risk assessment.
Eat, Drink, Paint and Play at Leake Street Arches; a celebration of urban art, dining and entertainment located underneath Waterloo Station.
Eight former railway arches have been brought back to life to provide a community of independent restaurants, bars and entertainment spaces that are united by their approach to celebrate the creativity of urban culture.
Adjoining London's longest legal graffiti wall on Leake Street (which has made its name as a democratic cultural venue for street art) Leake Street Arches is an exciting street-culture led destination.
UPDATE - WHAT'S ON
UPDATE: In light of the ongoing Government response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Leake Street Arches is continuing with a virtual #LeakeStreetLIVE programme throughout July and August to provide online urban entertainment whilst supporting the creative community. As a destination that celebrates creativity, we are keen to continue the support of independent musicians and artists with our online entertainment programme. We will stream graffiti tutorials every Thursday via our IGTV account. and will hold our first #LeakeStreetLIVE music festival on Saturday 15th August, also on Instagram. Watch out for further updates.
From August, we will be resuming our immensely popular in-person graffiti classes with street artist SOFLY. Classes will only take place is Government guidance allows these to resume and attendance will be reduced to allow for social distancing and the safety of participants.
