Poem Walks & Living History Talks in the Olympic zone

Poem Walks & Living History Talks in the Olympic zone

Walks with performance of poems from Jude Rosen’s Reclamations collection (forthcoming) inspired by  voices and narratives of the Olympic zone and Lower Lea Valley, with a living history commentary on struggles over contested ownership and use of the land, the environment, work and recreation on the marshes by leading urban activists and writers on Games Monitor website.

There are six different walks around the Olympic zone and the marshes of the Lower Lea Valley:- the north Olympic Park; the south Olympic Park, Leyton Marsh and the Essex Filter Beds; north Hackney Marsh; south Hackney Marsh, East Marsh & Wick Wood; Hackney Wick & Fish Island.

The walks last for two and a half hours including a half-hour tea break and take place roughly once a fortnight from April 30 to October 29 . They cost £7/£4 concession with free tickets for those without income, and a pamphlet with maps, documents and some of the poems is available for £3.
