After being forced to cancel last year due to the other C-word, Miracle on Leake Street (the free Christmas celebration that sees London’s longest graffiti tunnel transformed into a festive urban paradise) is back!
On Thursday 9th December, Waterloo’s creative community will come together to once again lead this alternative Christmas celebration that will remind us all why Home Alone is best suited for Christmas viewing - not doing! In addition to a screening of the Home Alone movie, a wreath making workshop,skate & spray workshop, festive face-painting, street food stalls and giant board games, guests will also be able to get a sneak peek of a range of hilarious comedy and fabulous cabaret from the VAULT Festival 2022 line-up.
Held every January to March within venues across Waterloo, VAULT festival is the UK’s leading independent showcase of live performance and artistic talent, which will burst to life for eight glorious weeks of creativity from 25th January to 20th March 2022. With 2022 marking the 10th Anniversary of the festival, it’s set to be bigger than ever before with over 600 shows of the best new theatre, comedy, immersive experiences, cabaret, live performance, and late-night events. Miracle on Leake Street provides the perfect opportunity to get a feel for the vast range of performances that will be on offer.
This free event is run by WeAreWaterloo and Southbank BID and will be held at Leake Street Arches on Thursday 9th December from 6-9pm. Donations are welcome and all proceeds will go to the Waterloo Action Centre - a space run by and for the local community for the past 40 years, but which is under threat of closure.
Leake Street Arches is normally a world away from the traditional fireplace setting but with music, costumes, (and even snow!) the festive tone will soon be set. Guests can take a seat, wrap up in a blanket and watch a screening of Home Alone before heading off to explore all the other activities ...
