COVID-19 UPDATE - November 2020


Leake Street Arches remains open to members of the public as a public right of way. Steps have been taken to ensure the safety of those using the tunnel and these measures are being reviewed regularly in line with the latest guidance. Some of our businesses are operating on a takeaway only basis, please check their social media for the latest updates.


When using the tunnel for access or to collect takeaway, you must follow social distancing guidelines. Due to lockdown restrictions currently in place in England, we ask that you refrain from visiting the tunnel for artistic purposes until 2 December or until the Government lift lockdown restrictions. Our security team reserve the right to ask you to leave the premises. 

About #LeakeStreetLIVE


#LeakeStreetLIVE is a free public events programme taking place at Leake Street Arches throughout the year. 


Celebrating local street culture through food, drink, paint and play, the #LeakeStreetLIVE programme has included graffiti classes, music performances, a virtual music festival, group meditative dance sessions, paint jams and much more.


COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have had to postpone planned #LeakeStreetLive activities for the remainder of 2020. We will be relaunching our programme of events in 2021 when it is safe to do so and look forward to welcoming you to enjoy food, drink, paint and play with us at Leake Street Arches.
