This Small Business Saturday The Arch Company will be celebrating Brixton’s community of artists and independent businesses with a festive makers market in Brixton Station Passageway on Saturday 4th December 2021.
The Arch Company has worked in partnership with The Brixton Project to commission local artists, makers and traders to re imagine the Passageway with a vibrant colour scheme and bustling makers market for a one-off special occasion.
Paying homage to Brixton’s distinct and diverse railway arch heritage, The Arch Company and The Brixton Project have commissioned local street artist Luke
Warburton and his collective of renowned local street artists to transform the Passageway underneath Brixton Overground station. Connecting Atlantic Road with Brixton Station Road, this unloved section within the town centre, will be re-imagined by Luke and his team, turning the space into a vibrant and creative space for the community. Luke has previously worked with The Arch Company on the community artwork in Herne Hill.
On Small Business Saturday, the Passageway will host a festive pop-up market from 11am to 4pm curated by Make Shift Create, a platform showcasing Brixton’s young entrepreneurs and upcoming creative talent. Local Steel Band group the
London All Stars will greet market goers as they enter the Passageway, providing a distinctly Brixton festive welcome from 1pm, provided by Brixton BID. Visitors will also be met by a walking, talking, Christmas tree provided by
local makers Bureau of Silly Ideas who will interact with visitors and provide an entertaining and surreal
The first 250 shoppers will also receive a free gift bag from Brixton BID, filled with a limited-edition reusable coffee cup and notebook, both made from recycled paper cups.
