Guided Walk of Old Market

Free event with Dr Edson Burton

As part of the National Lottery's 25th Birthday celebrations, Trinity are working together with Bristol Cultural Development Partnership and Festival of Ideas to bring you a free guided walk of Old Market, celebrating the fascinating stories of Old Market that National Lottery funding has helped us to unearth over the years.

Writer and historian Edson Burton, co-author of Vice and Virtue: A History of Old Market, leads a guided walk around Bristol’s Old Market. From industrialisation to industrial decline, from music hall to television, from cinema’s hey-day to sleazy continental screenings, from Conservative club to Communist party, from overwhelmingly white to multicultural, from church mission to secularisation, from thriving centre to neglected corner, Old Market is a barometer of Bristol and British history. Burton charts the fascinating journey with a range of anecdotes drawn from interviews with past and present residents.

Starting at The Stag and Hounds on Old Market and ending at Trinity Centre, where you can have a cuppa and listen to a playlist inspired by Trinity's musical history, this walk is free of charge to all participants.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers.

Meeting point: Stag and Hounds, 11:30am
