A Walk in the Park: The Life and Times of a People's Institution

Parks are such a familiar part of everyday life, you might be forgiven for thinking they have always been there – and that they always will. In fact, the roots of even the most humble neighbourhood park lie in age-old battles over land and liberty. From their medieval life as private royal hunting grounds and private estates to their modern incarnation as public spaces teeming with activity, acclaimed author Travis Elborough traces their extraordinary history in an illustrated talk based on his new book, A Walk in the Park.


Tickets £4 (in store or online at http://ow.ly/Qivm3017vSd, redeemable against cost of A Walk in the Park by Travis Elborough)
