It was surreal for me to return to the Leake Street tunnel after nearly 10 years. The tunnel under Waterloo Station hosted Banksy’s ‘Cans Festival’ in 2008. Today the now ‘designated graffiti area’ continues to be covered by street art, but of a more traditional graffiti genre than that of 10 years ago.
artWEEK Live Music Night In support of Central London Samaritans
Devised by Artist Consultant & Curator Patsy Buchanan, on the evening of Wednesday 20 September we will celebrate art and live music in support of Central London Samaritans.
All within the backdrop of artWEEK Exhibition from 18 until 23 September 2017 – with artists Catherine Ingleby, Geoffrey Harrison, Lindsay Terhorst North, Robert Lee Davis, Sue Hoar, Susana Bravo, Terry Beard and Tony Short – at a hidden gem near Piccadilly Circus.
Listen to live music by up and coming singers.
Have your portraits drawn.
Buy a “Hope” Canvas.
For every £10 raised Central London Samaritans will be able to complete two potentially life-changing calls.
100% of monies raised from the sale of the “Hope” Canvas and portraits drawn, £5 from every entry ticket bought for this event will go to the Central London Samaritans, as well as 15% from the sale of paintings sold by the exhibition artists.
