Sunday ‘pay what you want’ walks

Hello, I’m doing ‘pay what you want’ walks around Shoreditch, Hoxton, Columbia Rd and Spitalfields on Sundays, beginning near Old Street at 11am. They take place on the last 3 Sundays of each month and this Sunday (15th Jan) is the first of 2012. Each walk is about 3 hrs and takes in the above areas and covers bits of history, buildings, development, Shakespeare, Street Art, Gunpowder Plot and lots of other bits. A real hotch potch. If you fancy coming along, then please feel free to have a look at the website and you can contact me through there to book a place if you so wish. Also booking for the remaining Sundays in Jan and last 3 Sundays in Feb. Many thanks, Jonnie

  13. Oh … should have written @saladefolle so you can see it. Hopefully that works. Please have a look at the previous post. Taaaaaaa.

  14. @maartenjacobs @londiner @stephenhignell you’ll need to fill in your details over here too:

  15. @bowlofchalk @saladefolle @ewebber @londiner I’m going bowling on Sunday too, be good to meet you; I hope the weather improves!

  16. Cool, I’m looking forward to it @bowlofchalk do you have everyone’s details?

  17. Hello, Think so. I’ve got you (Emily), Kirsten Foster  and Maarten Jacobs down for Sunday, then not sure if @saladefolle is coming. I think it’s Violaine, but she hasn’t sent an email to confirm, unless I’m mistaken. Anyone else? See you on Sunday.

  18. I will likely turn up with @saladefolle , so don’t worry too much about her details. Has @traxcitement or @stephenhignell sent you their details?

  19. Yep I’m in +1, have confirmation email.

  23. My sentiments exactly. Hope you didn’t have too much fun without me after Columbia Rd. I’m going to dive in again as soon as I can. Anyone for seconds?

  24. @londiner that was the best bit ;)Thanks @bowlofchalk it was fun – maybe another when it’s a little warmer!

  25. Hi everyone, sorry for the slow reply – was great meeting all of you too! I went up St Augustine’s Tower in St John’s churchyard yesterday and would highly recommend it – you get great views of Hackney! Think they have open days on the last Sunday of every month :)Laura
