Bethlem History Walk - March
Sat 25 March 2017, 11:00 – 12:00 GMT
What was here before?
Due to popular demand we will be repeating our history walk every last Saturday of the month come rain or shine. Join us for a walk around the stunning grounds of the Bethlem Royal Hospital with artist Matthew in collaboration with the Bethlem Museum of the Mind. On this walk we will be asking ‘What was here before?’ and finding out about the history of the hospital from when it moved in 1930. Is Monks Orchard anything to do with monks? What was this iron fence for?
We will also be looking at what wildlife was here before by discovering remains and tracking animal activity.
Strong footwear is advised at it may be muddy in places and be prepared for rain or shine! Concession tickets are available for SLaM Service users, people over 60, students, people on jobseekers allowance and people registered as disabled. Assistants for people registered as disabled go free. For a paid event, we regret that tickets cannot be refunded unless the event is cancelled.
Walks begin at 11am and last approximately 1 hour and start in the Bethlem Gallery. We will set off promptly so please arrive a little early to be sure not to miss us.
