about WXSP

Whitecross Street Party and the Rise of the Nonconformists exhibition is one of London’s most unique, annual outdoor events. 

Celebrating our eleventh year and reflecting our challenging times, this year’s event is titled A New World.


Honouring our human and nonhuman diversity in the city. Bringing together that special mix of street arts, performance and that little bit of the unexpected with EC1’s local communities. 


This celebrated weekend and family-friendly event showcases over 20 of the finest street artists painting live.


This performative action results in the outdoor exhibition mounted on buildings along the streets for the RISE OF THE NONCONFORMISTS exhibition inspired by the area's nonconformist heritage.


Alongside our party would not be complete without our Youth Music Stage and Words Stage to pack the weekend with live music and dance.


In addition, we have lots of creative family activities programmed with our partners and a great street market to browse and buy treats. 


After a year off we look forward to welcoming you back. We have made every provision to make this outdoor event as safe as possible for you.


However, if you do not feel well or are a bit under the weather please don’t risk coming along and we will look forward to seeing you the following year.

Join us on Whitecross Street (EC1) from Midday 12:00 – 6:00pm on

Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th September 2021.

We look forward to seeing you there!
