A walking, arts-filled, night-time cultural journey through London.

Award-winning poet, playwright and performer Inua Ellams began the Midnight Run in 2005 after a bus failed to arrive on time. Now celebrating its 10th year, the Almeida and Inua have collaborated to create a Greek-inspired Midnight Run.

Join a host of artists as we reclaim the streets and explore the hidden spaces of our capital after dark.

Born in Nigeria, Inua Ellams is a cross art form practitioner, a poet, playwright & performer, a graphic artist & designer. He is a Complete Works poet alumni, a playwright-in-resident at Soho Theatre, resident at the Southbank Centre’s Poetry Library, and a graphic designer at White Space Creative Agency. Across his work, Identity, Displacement & Destiny are reoccurring themes in which he also tries to mix the old with the new: traditional african storytelling with contemporary poetry / pencil with pixel / texture with vector images. His first two books of poetry are published by Flipped Eye, and several plays by Oberon.
