Friday, 29th April, 2016, 11 am

CoolTan Arts CoolWalks invites you to join us on a free guided walk around Camberwell and beyond to learn about the area’s links to freedom fighters of the past.  Learn new things, make friends, get fit and have fun.  Whether you know the area or not, CoolWalks encourages shared experience – add your local knowledge or discover something new!

Start at Camberwell’s New Library (48 Camberwell Green SE5 7AL ) at 11am and finishes at the Camberwell Green about 90minutes later.

The walk is approximately 2 ½ miles and we would ask participants to wear sensible walking footwear and weather appropriate clothing.  Participants can leave at any-time.
