1pm – 2.30pm
Meet at Quaker Rooms. This is a form of walking tour – There will be a short introduction, then participants will be given a sheet of questions and asked to reassemble at a place in the city centre in an hour’s time. There participants will discuss what they encountered on their journey, and their answers to the questions posed. Note that, as such, the travel from the start to the destination will be very different for people with different mobility needs. The end destination will be accessible.
(Anyone who is worried their mobility needs will prevent them from participating fully, please talk to organisers.)
