You might recall that earlier this year, the somewhat run down tube station that had once marked the end of the East London Line before it was severed in favour of a modern concrete box was put up for sale.
With a reserve price of just £180,000 – Shoreditch Tube Station somehow managed to go for £665,000, and to an art gallery.
Now owned by an organisation called “nowtspecial“, they are hosting an event later this week.
According to their Facebook page since the sale, the site has been renovated and transformed into “East London’s most unique arts/events space with a spectacular 700 capacity newly decked terrace running directly under the heart of Brick Lane, and a 400 capacity ground floor foyer, being the old station ticket hall.”
I make no comment about the art event, as they are being annoyingly cryptic about it – but the event does offer a chance to go and see what has happened to the old tube station since it last saw passengers.
Exhibition is open June 2nd-9th, 10am to 7pm.
