Celebrating National Poetry Day we are off to Clerkenwell, to step back through time, with the help of the London Metropolitan Archives and The Charterhouse. Walk with us composing haiku, through one of London's oldest market and tradesmen's neighbourhoods - we will walk from the present day back to the foundation of The Charterhouse 660 years ago.
From the LMA
Haiku time travellers walk

Join us for this free walkshop beginning at the London Metropolitan Archive at 6.30-pm - 8.00pm Thursday 6 October. Numbers are limited - to guarantee a spot book in advance on line here - if spaces are available, you could chance it and drop in on the day.
If you can't join in on the day, we are happy to receive Tweeted haiku @museumofwalking #575onfoot
There’s an option of having the haiku you create printed and published in a zine - as an anthology from each walk - see previous month’s zines here
