Culture Mile

Culture Mile is a corner of London’s working capital, where creativity is fast becoming the most valuable currency.

The Barbican, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London Symphony Orchestra and the Museum of London, together with the City of London Corporation, are leading the animation of the whole neighbourhood with imaginative collaborations and events.

Culture Mile brings commerce and culture together in a wealth of creativity.

Known meets unknown. Ancient and modern collide as the streets are activated by exhibitions, gigs, pop-ups and events. So whether you’re with family, friends or flying solo, there’s something for everyone. And thanks to Crossrail’s new Elizabeth line connections at Farringdon and Moorgate, the area is more connected than ever.

Join us today where two thousand years of history collide with the world’s best culture.

Culture Mile Nights

Culture Mile Nights

21–23 November

Culture Mile Nights is a programme of after-dark events that explores Smithfield’s night-time economy, from historical pubs to superclubs. It has been inspired by the Barbican’s Into the Night exhibition and the upcoming Museum of London's The Clash: London Calling display.  

Celebrating the area and its cultural landscape, Culture Mile Nights is hosting a range of events including an immersive live performance from poet Joshua Idehen, a tribute to pirate radio station Dread Broadcast Corporation and a Guildhall School of Music & Drama jazz night, to name just a few.
