International London: walking tours
London can sometimes seem like it's the centre of the world. In three historical walking tours we explore the city as the home of international projects.
Tour 1: FULLY BOOKED. Wartime London (25 November, 11am): Many governments-in-exile were based in London during WWII. This walk through Belgravia and Westminster explores the physical proximity of exile and British politicians. This tour by Dr Jessica Reinisch will meet outside 43 Eaton Square, London, SW1W 9BD.
Tour 2: Epidemic London (25 November, 1pm): This tour through Bloomsbury explores responses to global epidemics, which in turn shaped international epidemic management. This tour by Dr Dora Vargha will meet outside the entrance of The Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, NW1 2BE.
Tour 3: FULLY BOOKED. Communist London (25 November, 3pm): London was far more important than Moscow in the international socialist and communist movement before 1917. Dr Johanna Conterio and Dr Ana Antic will lead a tour through Soho to explore the base of leading activists and highlights London's links with continental Europe. This tour will meet outside Queen’s Theatre, 51 Shaftesbury Ave, London W1D 6BA.
This event is part of the University of London's hub programme, 'Ministry of Hope and Fear', for the Being Human festival.
As our Festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets comes to our events. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
