Ghosts Walk // Ben Waddington
Sunday April 8th, 11am – 12 30pm, £5 (including hot drink & light lunch)
Meet in Ort Gallery
No haunted houses or horror stories on this guided walk led by Ben Waddington, for the ghosts of the title are the shades of the past that surround us every day, visible only when we start looking. These may be pre-Victorian survivors of an earlier era, the ‘ghost signs’ in the gables of shops on the high street, or the Balsall Heath Zeitgeist – the spirit of the times that characterises local identity, then and now. The truth is out there!
Ben is the director of Still Walking, Birmingham’s festival of guided tours and walking events.
Booking must be made in advance of the event here. The walk will last approximately 90 minutes and will begin and end at Ort. Please dress according to the weather and wear shoes suitable for urban walking. We welcome participants with disabilities, for questions please inquire. Participants are invited to return with Ben to Ort for rest, further conversation and free food and refreshments.
