Largactyl Shuffle Walk Dates 2014-2015


Largactyl Shuffle

Are you interested in London’s hidden stories? Then CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle is for you! Join us on our fun guided cultural walks for mental and physical wellbeing.
Each month the walk explores a different theme, through intriguing talks on local history, arts and health. You can learn new things, make friends, get fit and have fun!

 The Largactyl Midnight WalkShuffle has been running since 2006 and is named after the oldest anti-psychotic drug, Largactil, that can have extreme physical side effects including a distinctive shambolic gait, or ‘shuffling’. The walks are researched and led by our Largactyl Shuffle volunteer group who meet weekly to plan the walks.

Walks happen on the third Saturday of each month and last approximately 4 hours.

Walks are family friendly and inclusive and are suitable for people of all abilities including wheelchair users. You can join us for half an hour, half a mile or the full distance of 4.8 miles.

Walks usually start from outside the main entrance of Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill, SE5 8AZ OR from outside the Turbine Hall entrance of Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG.
