TWISTS AND TRANSFORMATIONS: DICKENS' LONDON BOROUGH WALK

5.30pm-7.30pm  at Borough Underground Station,  Borough High
Street; £5; book your place at
www.cooltanarts.org.uk/guided-walks
This walk is conducted through the streets of Old Borough,
and follows the 'Twists and Transformations' of Dickens's
early childhood, revisiting early Victorian London South of
the River. By encountering the traumatic twists in Dickens's
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.
