Join CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle, a guided, stigma-busting cultural walk, designed to encourage mental and physical wellbeing, through art, exercise, humour and history.
This months walk focuses on William Blake, an English poet, painter, and printmaker (1757 – 1827) who is considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age. Starting from Tate Modern and finishing at his burial place at Bunhill cemetery we will explore the City of London along the way. Our walk leaders will share with you talks and readings exploring the themes of Blake’s work and life, covering – Poetry, Art, Blake’s influence on artists, Religion, Politics, Revolutionaries and Mental Health!
Come along and add to the discussion and exploration of Blake, share your thoughts and ideas, enjoy the company of others and have fun.
Voted one of London’s Top Ten walks by Timeout magazine, the Largactyl Shuffle is fun, free, fully accessible and a great way to meet new people!
The walk leaders wear orange high-viz vests and rucksacks. Call CoolTan Arts on 07985 658443 if you cannot find the group of walkers on the day.
