Event description
Join poets and psychogeographers Chris McCabe and Niall McDevitt on a Blake-inspired walk through Peckham.

About this Event

Drawing on The Bard exhibition at Flat Time House, McCabe and McDevitt will lead you through this area of London associated with Blake's ramblings.

Walk begins at 1pm. Blake exhibition at Flat Time House free to view from 12noon.

Beginning at Flat Time House, the walk will visit the Goose Green mural which depicts Blake's boyhood vision of an angel on Peckham Rye. The walk will then go to the Rye itself in search for the tree that Blake saw his angel in, and then on diversion along the River Peck, one of many rivers that Blake was drawn to in his lifetime. The walk will end at Nunhead Cemetery, known as Nunhead Hill in Blake's day, where Blake's words will be read out loud to the urban dead. This walk is participatory and will invite thoughts and readings from Blake's poems from everyone on the walk who would like to contribute.
