UPDATE: In light of the ongoing Government response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Leake Street Arches is launching #LeakeStreetLIVE (in your lounge) to provide online urban entertainment whilst supporting the creative community. As a destination that celebrates creativity, we were keen to continue the support of independent musicians and artists by launching this online entertainment programme.
#LeakeStreetLIVE (in your lounge) will stream exclusive music performances and graffiti tutorials every Thursday via its IGTV account. In keeping with the usual schedule, music performances will start at 5.30pm and will last an hour. From 6.30pm, viewers will be able to watch a graffiti video tutorial with artist, Spray Saint.
Please note, our live events programme remains postponed. Existing ticket holders will have priority booking once our live events are back up and running.
#LeakeStreetLIVE is a free public events programme bringing you an exciting range of events at Leake Street Arches throughout the year.
Celebrating urban culture through food, drink, paint and play, the #LeakeStreetLIVE programme operates in seasons with new activities added as the year progresses.
The Spring Season focuses on free graffiti workshops accompanied by live music every Thursday night.
Led by Sophy Robson (aka SoFLY) these one hour sessions start with a brief introduction to the world of graffiti. After demonstrating a few techniques, Sophy then invites attendees to leave their own mark on the walls of Leake Street. Running from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, these workshops include overalls and spray paint.
The classes are accompanied by live music (from 5.30pm to 8.30pm) 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.
The bars and restaurants at Leake Street Arches, including Draughts, Banh Bao Brothers and Mamuśka! Polish Kitchen and Bar run special offers every Thursday and visitors can enjoy food and drink late into the night.
