Local writer John Constable, author of 'The Southwark Mysteries', conducts his latest walk for TNRA. On these walks, John draws on all his experience as a guide and as a performer to bring our local history vividly to life.
This year marks the 130th anniversary of the birth of Charlie Chaplin. There is no official record of his birth, although Chaplin believed he was born at East Street, Walworth, about 1 km away from Trinity Village. The walk will include the church where his parents were married, his supposed birthplace (in East Street), the Lambeth Workhouse where the family were housed in hard times, and West Square where they lived in happier days.
We will also explore the history and culture of the area in the late 19th century with its costermongers and music hall artists, visiting the sites of the old Surrey Gardens zoo and theatre, the Manor Place public baths and the South London Palace, one of London's most celebrated music halls.
We will gather on 5 September from 7.15pm for a 7.30pm departure on the corner of Walworth Road and Larcom Street, close to the Library and Cuming Museum, which were damaged in the 2013 fire. Bus 35 from Newington Causeway stops close by. No bookings are required. Just turn up and take part! The walk is arranged by TNRA free of charge for participants.
Upstairs in the Roebuck at 8 pm.
Please come at 7.45 to register.
Registration fee £1 per person. Make up a team of maximum 6 people.
Drinks and food available from upstairs bar throughout the quiz.
