Bridge Theatre,

Letters and postcards from London Bridge join us on a discovery of an area steeped in history which is undergoing rapid change, and help us record how it feels as a visitor or resident. Gathering and sharing knowledge as we walk, we invite you to write a letter or a post card from London Bridge. A selection of these letters and postcards will be published in a limited edition chapbook.

Life and death – living healthily, dying and disposal

Both the provision and education associated with Guy’s Hospital and Kings College has a huge legacy in the area as well as being a significant landmark. Place shaping is also improving public health, with the provision of accessible and attractive public realm (footways, paths, riverside access, gardens and parks) are all significant ‘health assets’.

The area however, has also had a long history of burial, not just human but animal carcasses as well, and many areas previously set aside for burial are now providing opportunities for leisure activities and green space.

What strange spirits might one encounter in the haunts of the London Bridge area?

Join Andrew Stuck, founder of the Museum of Walking for this fascinating exploration of the London Bridge area.
