Devised by artist, Inua Ellams, the Midnight Run has taken place in many towns, including Paris, Madrid, Berlin, London and Hastings Storytelling Festival 2016.
The Midnight Run is a walking, arts-filled, night-time cultural journey through urban spaces. It gathers strangers and local artists together to explore, play and create, whilst the city sleeps. The MNR aims to break down social barriers and provide a platform for established and emerging creatives, bringing moments of genuine interactive creativity.
Back for its second year, the Hastings Midnight Run will celebrate the town and it’s hidden, waterside spaces. Beginning at a secret location, Kit Caless will take you on a journey, guiding you through the lesser-known nooks and crannies of the town before ending in a hidden location at midnight.
Kit Caless is a co-founder, editor and publisher at Influx Press. He is passionate about producing alternative, respected and well-designed books that explore place and our relationship with space. Working as a freelance writer, Kit has had several short fiction and journalism pieces published in many places including Ambit, The Quietus, and the Huffington Post. Kit works as a freelance as a speaker and events coordinator, with specific focus on London literature. Find out more at: Influx Press
