Thursday 26 October
6pm-8pm; strts at Borough Underground Station,  Borough High
Street; £6 from
Arun Mahajan leads a walk through the streets of Old
Borough, 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'. We
imagine again the old ground of the Borough, around the
debtors' prison of Marshalsea and in the places Dickens
frequented: the quiet graveyard of St George the Martyr, the
bustling fruit and veg market, Horsemonger Lane Jail and Old
London Bridge. This walk is part of the CoolWalks Autumn
Urban Forest Festival (26-28 October 2017).
