Literary Footprints 2014

Virginia Woolf National Portrait Gallery

This October our Literary Footprints festival celebrates London books and authors with over 40 walks and talks

Among the events will be a series of walks looking at one of the greatest of London Writers – Virginia Woolf

 

 

Virginia to Vita Sackville-West, Nov. 13, 1937

“I’ ll take you to The Tower–I’ve just been there, this dripping Sunday; because almost every day I take my walk through the City. I like it better than Kent–Bread Street, Camomile Street, Seething Lane, All Hallows, St Olaves–Then out one comes at The Tower, and there I walk on the terrace by the guns, with the ships coming up or down–which is it? . . . “

Virginia Woolf loved to walk the streets of London, and her work contains vivid descriptions of places that are familiar today. Our series of walks visits places important in her life and work, and we have a talk about her life and loves in the atmospheric location of St Olave’s Hart Street, Pepys local church and a place Virginia held dear.

The programme is as follows

A walk with Rob Smith tracing the route taken by Clarissa Dalloway on her way to buy flowers for her party in Virginia Woolf’s classic London novel

4th October 2pm Circles, Squares and Triangles – Virginia Woolf in Bloomsbury
