Take a walk around Tottenham with tour guide Avril Nanton - author of 'Black London' - as she looks at the history of some of the women in Haringey, in particular the black women who lived, worked, or visited Tottenham.
This walk for Women’s History Month takes in the historic heart of Tottenham from the High Road to Bruce Castle. Along the way, discover more about the lives of local Black women from the past three centuries who have lived, worked, and made history in Tottenham. From Sarah Claret at All Hallows in 1770 and nurse Sister Freda in 1900, to more recent histories of the seven sisters who planted trees and Tottenham’s first black comedy club run by a woman. Come along and hear their fascinating stories, and those of many other African/ Caribbean women of Tottenham.
Avril Nanton is a fully qualified tour guide who regularly does walks and tours around Haringey, looking at Black life.
This special free walk is organised by Bruce Castle Museum & Archive with Avril's Walks and Talks.
Please dress for the weather and wear suitable footwear.
All welcome. Booking is essential via Avril's Website.
