Street Scenes are all about creating spaces where people can comfortably experience public life. There’s no better place to enjoy the diversity of London than the streets, and we aim to create welcoming conditions for that.


For over ten years, we have gathered on the streets with a table, chairs, entertainments (like origami, letter writing or patchwork) and chatter. With no more than the basics of an outdoor picnic, we make public places friendly for all, a good alternative to a private venue, where you really could meet anyone.

Here’s a guide for how you can run your own event: 10 steps to running a Street Scene
