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.

Up and down – sketching from every angle

We all know how easy it is to snap a great view, especially when an opportunity is offered from the top of a tall building, but many of us find it far harder to capture it in a drawing or a sketch. Capturing the essence of a skyline in a drawing or a sketch while on the move is something more to accomplish. We are often limited in looking only from the ground up, but the London Bridge area provides a wealth of taller buildings that offer unique angles to observe the boundary that is the skyline. We will begin with a drawing of a skyline view and then walk into the skyline, drawing as we go.

Join Ruth Broadbent, artist and drawing tutor, and Andrew Stuck, founder of the Museum of Walking for this fascinating exploration of the London Bridge area.
