The Midnight Run

A Brixton City Festival 2017 event

The Midnight Run is a walking, arts-filled, night-time cultural journey through urban spaces. 
The first 10 places are £5 - first come first served!

  • Sat 23 Sep, 6:00pm

Venue: Elsewhere

The Midnight Run gathers strangers and local artists/activists to explore, play and create whilst the city sleeps. There have been events in Paris, Rome, Berlin, Barcelona, Perth, Auckland to name a few.

The Midnight Run is also a containment for conversation and much has been said about the changing face of Brixton, given its rich and complex history. Commemorating 30 Years of Black History Month, Join Kelly Foster (certified London tour guide and Brixton Historian) in exploring, excavating and discussing aspects of the area, from the Windrush Generation, to Michael Jordan's visit in 1985, to the riots. Along the route, Inua Ellams (Brixton resident and Founder of the Midnight Run) will lead imaginative creative exercises on capturing the exhilarating experience in verse.

As always, in typical Midnight Run fashion, expect the unexpected and come to have fun.

The Midnight Run 
Cause we can't see stars for fumes
we turn to smashed glass, believing
shards shine like constellations do.
