Southwark LGBT History Guided Walk

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

Southwark poet and performer John Constable conducts this free walk especially commissioned for the Southwark LGBT Network.

John reveals the secret history of Southwark's medieval Liberty with its cross-dressing actors and prostitutes licensed by Bishops, and performs short excerpts from The Southwark Mysteries, his own work inspired by it.

This unusual guided tour explores the history of sexual identity, with particular reference to LGBT-related stories.

You are also Southwark welcome to come and share your own knowledge and personal anecdotes, to help recover a lost part of our history.

The walk lasts up to 2 hours.
