For those in the know, the undercover arts scene in London hosts a whole variety of innovative, exciting and often astounding events and experiences for the public to enjoy. Whether you live in the Magdalen Estate area or in other parts of London, finding out about said events is perhaps easier than you might imagine, particularly if you keep your eyes open and give out your email address freely. Signing up to artists’ and gallery mailing lists, and getting your details on to theatre newsletter listings are good ideas, particularly as organisations often send out information about promotional events that are either very low cost or free. Often it’s very vague as to what you’ll be experiencing, but that’s half the reason why we love it- experiencing the unexpected.
The one undercover event that has taken London by storm the most is certainly Secret Cinema, a screening of a selected film-often a popular classic-in a location not even revealed to the audience until a few days prior to their booking. Not only does one get the chance to enjoy a wonderful film surrounded by other cool, art-types, but the whole experience is enhanced by set, props and actors who create the world of the film around you.
