The Midnight Run

A night time adventure through the city

Founded by Inua Ellams in 2005, The Midnight Run is a walking, dusk to dawn, arts and culture-inspired urban journey that gathers complete strangers to play, walk, explore, create art and reclaim streets and hidden spaces whilst the city sleeps.

To celebrate 10 years of growing success this event sees The Bush Theatre join forces with the Almeida Theatre, The Albany, and the Roundhouse for four synchronised Midnight Run events across the city.

WHEN AND WHERE?
Our Midnight Run will begin at the Bush Theatre at 6pm, Saturday July 18 and will finish at 6am, Sunday, July 19 in Central London. Participants are advised to dress for the weather, bring a pen, a first class stamp, cash for food, an Oyster card and above all a healthy sense of adventure.

Cause we can’t see stars for fumes
we turn to smashed glass, believing
shards shine like constellations do

This 3min film is a taster of what to expect.

50% of funds raised will support Liter of Light, a sustainable lighting project which aims to bring eco-friendly solar bottle-bulbs to communities living in darkness.
