Norton Folgate Lost
Norton Folgate Lost in the company of Tom Bolton, author of Vanished City and London's Lost Rivers- 6.00pm Wednesday 11 November, 2015 Start: Liverpool Street Station - Bishopsgate exit (top of the escalators)
Following the success of Kings X Lost and Aldwych Lost, the Museum of Walking is delighted to announce that Tom Bolton, author of Vanished City and London's Lost Rivers will accompany us on a tour of Norton Folgate.
Once a thriving parish, home to numerous street markets and soon to become the heartland of the Jewish East End, remnants of this neighbourhood are in little evidence. That's unless you are in the company of arch Lost Neighbourhood detective, Tom Bolton, who on this walkshop will draw us into Norton Folgate, to step out onto its once busy streets.
In recent years Norton Folgate has begun to develop a reputation as the last bastion against property-developer driven capitalism, holding out against the influx of high rise offices as the borders of Hackney and Tower Hamlets merge with the City of London.
See familiar places from a new angle, discover hidden gems and vantage points to see into this neighborhood's glorious past - let's discover what has Norton Folgate Lost?
Tom will be signing copies of his books. A special discount for the books will be made available to those on the walk.
Wednesday 11 November 6.00pm-8.00pm Start - Liverpool Street Station - Bishopsgate exit (top of the escalators)
Book on-line for the keenest ticket prices:
On-line: £15 / £10 NUS concession. On the day £20
On-line tickets are the cheapest - if you introduce someone new to the Museum of Walking (or Tom Bolton) you and they get £1 cash back on the day.
Date added: 29 October 2015
