Old Street Tube Station is to host a series of pop-up festivals showcasing the best brands in sport, design, art, fashion, fitness, technology, film and music.
London Underground says the festivals are part of the station’s “pop-up revolution” which has seen retail units on the station reserved for small businesses to showcase their products and services.
A different themed festival will be held each quarter, beginning this month with a Health and Wellbeing Festival.
Justin Brand, Director of Commercial Asset Management at TfL, said: “Since we launched Old Street Tube station as our pop-up retail destination, over 200 retailers have set up shop there, bringing some fantastic services and products to the 23 million people who use the station each year.
“The new line up of retailers at the station will showcase some of the best brands around. The revenue that we generate from the retailers is reinvested into our transport network to deliver improved services for customers.”
The brands appearing in January’s Health and Wellbeing festival include:
