BETJEMAN WALK WITH LANCE PIERSON
Monday 12 June 2017

Cost: £9    Maximum No: 20

Actor Lance Pierson leads a guided walk around Highgate to see the places where John Betjeman was born, brought up and went to school. At each stop Lance will read the poems connected to the place including ‘Archibald’, ‘NW5 and N6’ and extracts from ‘Summoned by Bells.’ The walk also boasts a wonderful view of London from Parliament Hill Fields. Be warned though West Hill is a very steep climb!

The walk, which is likely to take a little over two hours, finishes in Highgate Village close to bus routes.  Good mobility on this walk is recommended and it is probably not for the faint hearted.

Meet at Kentish Town Station at 1.50 pm for a 2 pm start.  Kentish Town is on the High Barnet branch of the Northern Line and if no through train is shown take the first one and change at either Euston or Camden Town.
