Ecologistes Midnight Walk – Explore the City jungle on London’s unique Spiral Trail segment 3
July 27 @ 9:00 pm - July 28 @ 1:00 am
Midnight City Jungle Walk
Meet at Finsbury Park (Entrance to Park – Seven Sisters Road) – at 9pm.
Segment 3 Finsbury Park to SouthWark London Bridge
For this midnight walk along InspiralLondon Trail we will be meeting the other residents of London and the City that appear by night – looking for nocturnal fauna: bats such as the common pipistrelle (A single pipistrelle can eat 3,000 tiny insects in just one night); night insects like the death head hawkmoth, beetle or crickets; urban inhabitants such as the fox or the rat. As dusk falls we will also explore the scents and touch of flora by night.
Following on the success of InspiralLondon’s Midnight walk for the opening of National Park City Week 2018, this walk takes a similiar approach; by inviting participants and associate artists to join in a number of interactive and entertaining urban ecologistes activities as we wend our way clockwise along the 300 mile trail back into the centre, passing through the City of London by night. Our estimated time arrival at London Bridge will be 1 to 1.30am. A night service runs from the station/underground plus option of numerous night buses.

InspiralLondon.com is an artist-led project, working collectively, to create a new walk trail spiraling out through London, from Kings Cross to Gravesend. The 300-mile pathway is divided into 36 easily accessible walk segments. See here for more details and to follow the route in your own time – https://www.inspirallondon.com/
