As part of the Literary Footprints Festival this walk looks at the London locations that have featured in dystopian and post apocalyptic fiction. London has been destroyed fictionally many times in books, films and paintings. The walk will involve readings from some of these works (including Mary Shelley, George Orwell, John Wyndham and others), allowing the walkers to contrast the current surroundings with the imagined world of the author. 

Where: Westminster tube station, outside exit 4, Bridge Rd, London, SW1A AA.

When: 26th October 2016

Price: £9.00 - £12.00
