Event description
An online walk through the back streets of the King's Cross, with former 'bobby on the beat' Chris Foster.

About this event

Chris Foster has a love of the old part of the Kings Cross area, south of Euston Road, where he was a Bobby on the Beat fifty years ago. He has developed his own unique walk through the back streets and then created an illustrated online version. Chris will not only entertain you with many historical facts, but will also add plenty of personal memories from his policing days, starting off with the immortal words "You will never guess what happened on this street corner...".

Organiser Bloomsbury Festival

Organiser of Alternative Kings Cross & Bloomsbury

Local, global, inspiring - Bloomsbury Festival is a unique event created with over 100 partners in this vibrant cultural quarter.  For ten days in October, the streets, parks, museums, galleries, laboratories and public and private buildings of Bloomsbury will host up to 150 original events which attract audiences from across London and beyond.  

A hotbed of creativity and pioneering development, Bloomsbury also has one of the youngest and most diverse residential populations in the country. Bloomsbury Festival acts as a catalyst bringing together the area's artists, scientists and residents to explore arts and ideas through the prism of an annual theme.

Outside the Festival event, the organisation delivers community engagement and arts development projects across the year. These include it’s pioneering project, Festival in a Box, which takes artists into the homes of people living with dementia to provide life enhancing and joyful cultural experiences.

Above all, Bloomsbury Festival aims to be enlivening, engaging, entertaining, and fun!

Bloomsbury Festival is a charity. Find out how you can support us.
