We have a basketful of entertaining walks and a flash writing competition to give you a creative spurt in October

The artwork presented here is created by Alban Low with whom we have been working since interviewing him for Talking Walking back in February.  This striking image will be the cover art for an anthology chapbook of flash stories of 250 words and under - why not put pen to paper this month and see if you become one of our winning authors?  Want some encouragement and  tips before you get started? Join our Autumn Colours creative writing walkshop with writing tutor Rebekah Lattin-Rawstrone - further details below. 

Come rustle some leaves with two fabulous walks led by Museum Co-creators,
Dr Peter Coles and Paul Wood.

For hundreds of years, London has been a glittering showcase for public art and communal expression. As the city continues to evolve, so too do the commissions and opportunities for contemporary artists from all walks of life to make work for both public and private urban developments. Each artwork along these routes form part of a puzzle that reveal the lives of the people and places who make up London’s network of villages. These guided walking tours weave through and tell the oft untold stories of London’s richer and poorer communities.  Read more & book early bird tickets by 17 October.
