About Event

#LeakeStreetLIVE is a free public events programme that brings a range of events and activations to Leake Street Arches throughout the year.

Celebrating urban culture through food, drink, paint and play, the #LeakeStreetLIVE Spring programme will see Leake Street Arches continue to host free graffiti workshops accompanied by live music every Thursday night.

Thursday night graffiti workshops will be led by Sophy Robson (aka SoFLY). Sophy will give a brief introduction to the world of graffiti before demonstrating a few techniques. Guests will then be invited to leave their own mark on the walls of Leake Street. Running from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, these workshops will include overalls, masks and spray paint.

The classes will be accompanied by live music from talented musicians from Busk London’s roster of emerging talent. Busk London is the world’s largest street performance initiative, curating over 12,000 hours of live street music across the Capital each year. Each Thursday, from 5.30pm to 8pm, three different artists will perform three separate 40 minute sets.

The bars and restaurants at Leake Street Arches, including Draughts, Banh Bao Brothers, Mamuśka! Polish Kitchen and Bar and 26 Leake Street will be open every Thursday evening so visitors can enjoy food and drink late into the night.

Workshops are free but guests must register in advance via Eventbrite. Guests who register for tickets and don't turn up (without giving prior notice) may struggle to book again in the future.
