CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle

William Blake Walk

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A guided stigma-busting cultural walk designed to encourage mental and physical wellbeing, through art, exercise, humour and history.

This month's walk focuses on William Blake, an English poet, painter, and printmaker (1757 – 1827) who is considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.

Starting from Tate Modern and finishing at his burial place at Bunhill Fields this walk will explore the City of London along the way.

The walk leaders will offer talks and readings exploring the themes of Blake's work and life, covering poetry, art, Blake's influence on artists, religion, politics, revolutionaries and mental health.

The walk leaders wear orange high-viz vests and rucksacks. Call CoolTan Arts on 07985 658443 if you cannot find the group of walkers on the day.

The Largactyl Shuffle is named after the oldest anti-psychotic drug Largactil that can have extreme physical side effects including a distinctive shambolic gait, or 'shuffling'.
