Launch of the Camberwell Black History Walk

The Camberwell Black History Walk is now a physical reality with a map lectern on the Green and eight plaques located around Camberwell at points linked to the people featured. The walk is being officially launched by the Mayor on the Green at 11:00am on Saturday 3rd February at the lectern, and all are very welcome to attend. After the launch at around 12:00 there will be an opportunity to join a guided group doing the walk. Book your place on the walk at Eventbrite

Alternatively you can download the walk guide from the Events and Activities page of this website and guide yourself, see menu above. Along the way you will hear the voice of a young actor reading the guide entries at the stopping points.
