In case you haven’t heard, London is about to get an all-night weekend tube service. Are you excited? We’re excited.
And so, it seems is TfL, which is launching an uncharacteristically hipsterish set of events to celebrate.
Up until the night tube launches, TfL will run a series of “pop-up music, dance and theatre performances”. Since late last week, Westminster Tube station has also played host to an exhibition of 24 photos by British artists, dotted into the station’s alcoves. The photos mostly show London night-time scenes, from tube workers leaving their shifts to jubilant unicyclists in tunnels.
Friday and Saturday all-night services will begin on 12 September on the Northern, Piccadilly, Central, Victoria and Jubilee lines; mayor Boris Johnson has said this will be expanded to include four more lines by 2021.
