Overground Underground

Always wondered what it would be like to be a Tube train driver? Well, artist collective Fitzrovia Noir’s new performance ‘Overground Underground’ won’t really enlighten you in the slightest but it sure looks like a lot of fun. As part of InTRANSIT Festival, from today until Saturday July 27, they’re looking for people to take a ride on a cardboard Underground train on a fantastical Tube line between Kensington (Olympia) and Holland Park.

Passengers are picked up along the way by a people-powered train designed by William Alexander and taken on imaginary overground routes around Holland Park including the Orangery, Kyoto Garden and Lord Holland’s Pond.

Each journey is free band will run from 10-11.30am and 12.30-2pm daily (with matinees at 4pm on July 24 and 26). Oh and it’s all dependent on the weather, of course. No one wants to take a ride in a soggy train.
