The Refectory

Better Bankside and Team London Bridge introduce #BetterAir Sensory Connections - 3 participatory 'walkshops' that will enable participants to discover different hidden and verdant spaces and tranquil routes either side of Borough of High Street.  

It is already understood that walking just one road back from a busy main road can halve the pollution pedestrians are exposed to, these walkshops will uncover some emerging tranquil routes being promoted to improve walking links between London Bridge and Bankside.

This walk focuses on hearing - we will be joined by Grant Waters, acoustician and project lead for Tranquil City You will be encouraged and supported in analysing your acoustic surroundings, becoming more aware of the ambience, the spaces that provide calm and those where intrusive noise can be limited. Documenting your discoveries using info-graphics and in defining an appropriate audio vocabulary.

All materials provided, please meet at The Refectory Courtyard, on the north side of Southwark Cathedral.

This is the second of our 3-part, 3-day series.
