‘Walking the City’ TCCE Annual Walking Weekend 2015 (Friday 17th April – Sunday 19th April)

We may feel that we know London pretty well but what do we really know about the stories and experiences hidden around the city?

The Culture Capital Exchange (TCCE) is delighted to host its second annual walking weekend, Walking the City, with several of its members’ academics sharing their unique knowledge and passion about the capital in a series of walks.

Walking the City presents an eclectic range of unusual and inspiring walks taking place between 17th and 19th April in areas throughout the city including: King’s Cross, St. James’s, Bloomsbury, Mile End, Whitechapel, Stratford and Harlesden. Subjects covered are diverse, ranging from the role that London’s Gentlemen’s Clubs have played in Literature to the changing nature and landscape of King’s Cross neighbourhood to the history of the shared South Asian and Jewish presence in London’s East End.

Evelyn Wilson, Director, The Culture Capital Exchange and Curator of Walking the City: “Walking is an activity that so many of us enjoy and there is always so much to discover about our city, its history, identity and how we inhabit it today. Our research communities are continually at the forefront of revealing and generating fresh and compelling knowledge about so many facets of our city, past and present. Walking the City therefore acts as a bit of a lever to get some of that amazing information and insight out of the lecture theatre and onto the streets, bringing to wider public attention some of the outstanding work taking place in our universities.”

PROGRAMME OF WALKS:

Each walk lasts 60 – 90 minutes. All walks open to the public. Tickets are just £5.
