Join CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle for a fun guided cultural walk for mental and physical wellbeing.
Try your hand at mudlarking – along the banks of the River Thames, and learn more about the history of beach combing.
From the 18th to the 20th century mudlarking was a recognised profession, while today people enjoy it more as a pastime and great way to find out about London's stories. Go paddling, have a picnic and you might just discover buried treasure!
The Largactyl Shuffle has been running since 2006 and is named after the oldest anti-psychotic drug, Largactyl, that can have extreme physical side effects including a distinctive shambolic gait, or 'shuffling'.
The walks are researched and led by the Largactyl Shuffle volunteer group who meet weekly to plan and research.
The walk leaders wear orange high-viz vests and rucksacks. The full walk is about 3 miles and will last approximately 4 hours. Please wear comfortable shoes and bring your own water.
Call CoolTan Arts on 07985 658443 if you cannot find the walking group on the day. All are welcome.
