CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle

Bermondsey Walk


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

Join CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle for the Bermondsey walk, a guided, stigma-busting cultural walk, designed to encourage mental and physical wellbeing, through art, exercise, humour and history.

This month's Largactyl Shuffle explores Bermondsey in relation to the arts, mental health and social history.

The walk include talks about one of Bermondsey's most famous characters, Dr Alred Salter, a crusading MP who made it his mission to improve living conditions in the area; and Jacob's Island, a once notorious slum immortalised by Charles Dickens in his classic novel Oliver Twist.

Wear comfortable shoes and bring your own water.

Largactyl Shuffle walks are suitable for all levels of walking and are accessible to wheelchair users and people with disabilities.

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