They might be more likely to sport a blue bag than a blue badge, but London’s homeless population certainly have a unique understanding of the capital. As part of the London Fringe Festival, a number of rough sleepers will be hosting guided walks around the London Bridge and Shoreditch areas. Tickets are £5, with nearly all of the sales going to the guides.
The walks are arranged by The Sock Mob, a meetup group who wander the streets of London, befriending and socialising with rough sleepers ‘in a completely non-judgemental and agenda-free way’. It’s hoped that the walks will help break down the prejudices and stigmas associated with the homeless and other marginalised groups.
Tickets can be booked here for any of 36 separate times, beginning on 6 August.
