TUNNEL RULES

COVID-19 UPDATE - November 2020

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.

 

London & Continental Railways Limited (LCR), the landlord of Leake Street Arches and the managers of the Leake Street Tunnel, are keen to support the creative community working on Leake Street and ensure that other people in the local area continue to value the contribution that tunnel activities bring to the neighbourhood.

The below rules are designed to create an enjoyable experience for everyone:

  • Graffiti and street art are permitted, and actively encouraged, on the walls and ceilings of the Leake Street Tunnel.

  • Graffiti outside the authorised area will be removed.

  • Graffiti featuring sexism, racism or advertising will be removed

  • Please take all empty spray cans home or dispose of them responsibly

  • Leake Street Tunnel is a public space, and so antisocial, indecent or offensive behaviour will be responded to in the same way as other public areas.

  • The only motor vehicles that are welcome are authorised service and event vehicles and emergency service vehicles. The police will issue warnings and seize vehicles where necessary.

  • Amplified music is not permitted in Leake Street Tunnel unless part of an authorised event.

  • Fire/smoke emitting devices are not permitted as excessive use sets off smoke/fire detectors in adjoining property and may cause concern or hazard to other tunnel users and neighbours. Please DO NOT use smoke grenades etc. Any such activity will be reported to the police.

  • All noise is to be kept to a minimum after 10pm to avoid disturbing local residents.

  • Visitors should take care when working at heights or on any structures in the tunnel and do so at their own risk.

  • All events (including photoshoots and filming) must be authorised by submitting a request form (see Events Section)

  • Non-for-profit events (including photoshoots and filming) will generally be approved within 24 hours (providing standard safety terms are agreed to)
