Last night I joined Saira Niazi from Living London to recce the route for a new joint adventure … secret passages and pathways:
Unfortunately it was so dark we couldn’t find the special-super-secret location we’d planned to use. We ended up climbing over a fence and getting swallowed up in the darkness just beyond Kensington Palace. It was fresh and damp and full of the silent energy of the trees growing. Saira showed me some absolutely ethereal places in Kensington that I have literally never been to before- as well as some alleyways and passages which all seemed extra beautiful by night!
After our recce, I chose a story to tell- it’s one of my favourites and is inspired by the darkness, the water and the whole energy of the experience.
UPDATE: New event just added- Wander derelict, underground and forgotten corners of Woolwich and listen to eerie site-specific stories with us on 8th July 2017. Booking essential, email me to reserve your space.
You can join us on our night-wander with storytelling on 25th March at 7pm, email me to book your place. All details click here. Places are limited (obviously) and not many left so if you want to come we recommend you book straight away. If you miss out this time, sign up to the mailing list or check the calendar for future adventures– which are sure to include more strange wanders with Saira!
