About this event: 

Explore the Heritage Trail, the creations of the participants and learn about the local area. Click on the map and wander around south Westminster at your leisure this weekend.

We’ve created an exciting new element for 2022’s festival that will bring young people and older adults from across south Westminster together to share memories, stories and to learn about their neighbourhoods.

The ‘Stories of Our Streets’ project took place in May and consisted of four guided workshops that explored the stories of the neighbourhoods where participants live and/or grew up in. Working together, participants investigated the history that has shaped their communities, discussing and creatively responding to their memories, investigations and research. Through these guided workshops and walks, participants developed a series of physical, written and recorded responses that form the basis of our two-day Heritage Trail on 9th and 10th July, supported by a small team of local volunteers.

We are also organising a walking tour on each day of the trail with our Trail Leader, exploring the trail  – book on our tour page!

Supported by National Lottery Grants for Heritage
