City of Hunger; City of Gold 18Oct

POSTPONED: We are sorry to say this event has had to be postponed, following new lockdrown restrictions and our commitment to safety. We hope to run them in the new year or when new guidelines permit.

From St Luke’s to Central Library, walkers will discover aspects of Liverpool’s Irish history, encountering a vanished church, pubs, statues, a 200 year old school and some of Britain’s finest Victorian architecture.

Amongst it all, shipping magnates, street urchins, priests, politicians and a jazz legend. Walkers will visit St George’s Plateau, the scene of many momentous events, and St John’s Gardens, to reflect on the Victorians commemorated there.

In addition to the South Liverpool walk, readers may also like the Scotland Road walk (24 Oct).

This in an outdoor walk; please be weather prepared, comfortable and hydrated. We will observe Covid-19 regulations as at the date of the walk. Walkers should act responsibly, including wearing a mask in the event streets or locations are busy. We will do all we can to maintain social distancing, but need your active co-operation in this.

This year’s walks are held in memory of Vin Finn, Festival volunteer and Irish community champion.
