What do you get when you combine a Free screening of The Muppet Christmas Carol, a drag queen, cheesy Christmas karaoke, promo reindeers and heaps of snow in London’s largest legal graffiti tunnel?
A Christmas Miracle that’s what… namely, a Miracle on Leake Street!
Miracle on Leake Street has been designed to put a smile on the face of even the most Scroogiest of Scrooges!
Run by This community event will be held at Leake Street Arches on Tuesday December 18 from 6pm-9pm.
Arriving to a costumed band of buskers, guests will make their way through the artificial snow, past graffiti artists at work, to the centre of the tunnel.
There they will find Drag Queen, Alexander Luttley, kicking off proceedings by leading a Christmas karaoke session.
Vocal chords warmed up, guests can then pull up a chair and a blanket to take part in a screening of The Muppet Christmas Carol.
For those who just want to dip in and out of the screening, there’s plenty of other activities to enjoy.
House of Vans, the iconic skateboard brand that has its European HQ at Leake Street, will be running an urban festive grotto and tombola.
Vaults Theatre, renowned for the incredible immersive performances they host throughout the year, will be opening their doors for a behind-the-scenes tour of their magical Sounds & Sorcery set.
Outside their entrance, actors and comedians performing at next year’s VAULT festival will be taking to the stage to give a flavour of what they’re working on.
Traders from Lower Marsh Market will move to the tunnel for the evening, to provide an enjoyable Christmas gift shopping experience.
Those inspired by the surrounding street art can join a graffiti masterclass at 26 Leake Street, which will be led by some of the local artists.
