South Bank's alternative Christmas event is back for a 5th year, turning the famous Leake Street graffiti tunnel into a festive party venue for one night only!
On Thursday 7th December, the Waterloo and South Bank community will once again lead this alternative Christmas celebration that will bring the whole (urban) family together.
The evening will begin with a Cabaret performance from the award-winning artist, Pi the Mime, before a screening of ‘Home Alone 2 – Lost in New York’.
Inspired by both Manhattan and Leake Street’s graffiti backdrops, guests can then join a free graffiti workshop led by Leake Street Arches Artist-in-Residence, Marc Craig. Under his expert tuition, attendees will be able to leave their own mark on the tunnels’ walls.
Throughout the evening there will also be free wreath-making workshops, festive face-painting, street food stalls, mulled wine, and market stalls run by local craft traders (perfect for finding that unique Christmas gift). With (machine blown) snow in the air, a snowboard simulator for (big) kids and a real-life Santa DJing outside Humbug Dive Bar, the transformation of Leake Street Arches into London’s coolest Christmas hangout will be complete.
This free event is run by WeAreWaterloo and South Bank London and will be held at Leake Street Arches. Donations made by cash and card throughout the evening will go to Waterloo Foodbank.
