On every Tuesday and Thursday throughout June and July, the BID hosted the Leather Lane Summer Series. For this event, the BID is placing some tables and chairs in the empty space on Leather Lane located outside 2 Waterhouse Square. Each table was designed with BID branding, as well as QR codes that directed people to the BID’s social channels. Live music will also be onsite every Thursday to provide light entertainment for those using the space.
The BID’s Street cleaning team were onsite to help act as an additional bin through the use of their cart. The tables and chairs will be stored in the storage space on Greville Street courtesy of Camden Council.
The aim of the event was to accomplish something that could change the narrative in Hatton Garden, that being that despite having one of London’s busiest street food markets, there is never anywhere to sit and enjoy their lunch. This was an immense success, seeing over 1600 people attend, and also activating a space that Camden had previously never commissioned for use.
