Deptford X Walking TOURS


Join us for a free walking tour of Deptford X 2018. These focus on our Platform commissions, Special Project and take in a selection of Fringe projects, all in an action-packed 75 minutes (approx.). All tours mix intimate and in-depth knowledge of the festival programmes with some juicy behind-the-scenes gossip. Tours set off daily at 13:45 from the Festival Hub (St Paul's House, 1 Market Yard SE8 4BX). Please remember to bring weather-appropriate clothing and footwear, and to take care on Deptford’s busy roads!

New this year is Fringe Trail; our 2018 Special Project artist Louise Ashcroft leads performance tours of the Deptford X Fringe, discussing points of interest and significant mundanity en route. Louise weaves a humorous docu-fiction based on photographs taken during her anthropological loitering
around Deptford Market, reflecting on the repetitions, interruptions and idiosyncrasies that give Deptford its resilient outlandishness.

Part of a multifaceted project in which a series of works performatively reinterpret the festival's (widely unread) GDPR document, reflecting on how we value individuality and
peculiarity.

Tours set off from the Festival Hub, St Paul's House, 1 Market Yard SE8 4BX. Tours last approx 75mins, routes vary.  All tours are free, but as spaces are limited please book via the links below:
