A creative Eastender proud of his roots has organised a quirky event to celebrate the London Underground in all its glory.
Former George Green School pupil Andy Green created “Tube Kultura” to celebrate London’s maverick undergound culture.
This one off event in Aldgate promises to transform your everyday Tube ride into an eye-opening whirlwind of creativity.
“The Tube is a cherished icon, an essential part of living in London,” said Andy. “I love turning the downside in the day into the upside.”
Tube Kultura marks an alternative celebration of the next 150 years of the Underground, while providing an evening packed with the joys of London life.
Instead of reminiscing about the tube’s great achievements, Andy has turned this celebration on its head to honour the weird and wonderful ways we can use the Underground in the future.
The event will include artists, creative gurus, Tube racers and Tube staff heroes.

It will feature seven speakers each sharing stories about the wacky ways in which they have used the underground.
With speakers ranging from James Wannerton, a man who created a tube map based on taste, to Gabrielle McDonald, a poet who works on the underground, the event is shaping up to be to be a unique affair.
“There are some great people doing great things to make you laugh or be inspired on the Tube.
“They demonstrate how having your own quirky take or story about the Tube is an essential badge that marks out the dignity of being a Londoner,” said Andy.
The event will take place from 7.30pm to 9.30pm Wednesday, January 15, at Toynbee Studios, Aldgate, London.
Tickets are £5, with booking advisable. Visit tubespiration.com for more details.
