Brixton Sound Walking Tour
Saturday 24 June and Saturday 22 July, 2.00pm-4.30pm

This extended walking tour will explore the stories and sites that represent more than 100 years of Black music in Brixton. From the musicians who brought jazz to the UK, the record shop that was headquarters to the British civil rights movement, the Trinidadian superstar who created an anthem for the Windrush generation, how the arrival of the sound system that changed British music forever. From dub poetry to dubstep, the radiogram to the radio stations, we will be walking the footsteps of generations of ravers in Brixton – this walk is a "one away" classic.

Walk specially curated for the Black Sound exhibition by Kelly Foster, London Blue Badge Guide. This is an extended walking tour. A good level of mobility is required. The walking tour will last approximately two and a half hours.

£10

*Please note the exact meeting location will be shared with all booked participants two days before the tour.
