The Midnight Run Checklist

Tomorrow night at 6pm 30 intrepid people will be leaving the Bush to take part in The Midnight Run which will go on right through til 6am. And it’s not any old run – to celebrate 10 years of growing success this event sees the Bush join forces with the Almeida Theatre, the Albany, and the Roundhouse for four synchronised Midnight Run events across the city.

If you couldn’t get tickets (it sold out in record time) or if you’re more of a sofa-midnightrunner then you can follow #MNRlight2015  for updates from our Front of House Apprentice Lauren Bevan who’s taking part, along with tweets from all four corners of London.

If you are taking part in the run here’s your checklist!

Advice:
Founder of the Midnight Run Inua Ellams advises that if it’s at all possible, you should try to stay up as late as you can on Friday and sleep as long as possible during Saturday daytime.

A list of things to bring with you:
Water and snacks (though there will be places to stop off along the way)
Warm and waterproof clothing
Your most comfortable shoes
A free/ old newspaper
Something to use as a decoration (ribbon/ coloured paper/ a CDs/ tea light/ a message/ stickable thing etc)
The tiniest, most minuscule gift you can find
Money for food
Oyster card with enough money on it for a bus and/ or tube ride
Camera phones with enough battery to last the night
A pen
A healthy sense of adventure…
