Please note that this walk may have been advertised in some publications as £7.50 – we have decided to offer the walk free of charge but are happy to accept donations, click here to be taken to our Make a Donation page.

The walk starts the CCA where our 21 Revolutions: Two Decades of Changing Minds Exhibition will be on display in the Intermedia Gallery. We expect this event to be very popular so book early to avoid disappointment and if you book a place please do come along on the day or cancel if you can no longer attend, it would be a shame for someone to miss out if a place could have been made available.
