Mary's revolutionary feminist eyes. Relive the ferment of
ideas and people that circulated around her, through her
writings and her relationship with her two sisters, and two

early childhood, revisiting early Victorian London South of

early years, as he took his first tentative steps into this
new city of opportunity, we reveal something of his restless
spirit, manifest in his compulsive night- walking and his
feelings of 'houselessness'. Part of CoolTan Arts' three-day
walking festival 'Explore, Exercise, Exhale'. CoolTan Arts
is an award-winning arts in health charity that supports
adults with mental health conditions.
