Going to the Docks
This is a Zoom walk on the evening of Tuesday 20th April at 7:30pm for the benefit of Cystic Fibrosis Supporters and the Chartwell Cancer Trust.
Starting at Canary Wharf, a trip along the diverse highways, byways and waterways leading to Wapping.
Discover what put the lime in Limehouse, the private life of a famous artist, London’s most perishable import, why a copper has a ‘beat’, medieval chemical warfare, the real story behind a notorious pirate, and why you can’t take a coffin on the Docklands Light Railway.

The Guildhall Walk in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Supporters
will take place on
Tuesday 23rd February at 7:30 pm
A walk through the City of London which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
Your guide, Andy Ellis, will take you from the Monument near London Bridge on a jolly jaunt through ancient streets and two thousand years of history to the City’s seat of power at the Guildhall.
Along the way we’ll encounter a musical world record, some (literally) boring stuff about the underground, a hint of Harry Potter, a dose of Dickens – plus fire, plague and even the City’s first recorded streaker.
There is no charge for the Walk but participants are invited to make a donation to Cystic Fibrosis Supporters who are passionate about raising awareness and much needed funds for research into Cystic Fibrosis. More at www.cysticfibrosissupporters.org
The meeting will run on Zoom and booking is via Eventbrite where you will be able to decide how much you’d like to donate. To help the charity you are asked to also pay the few extra pence for the Eventbrite booking fee.
Please book via Eventbrite
