Independent audio walks: You can take these walks anytime you like!

I’ve received quite a few questions on when I am giving these audio tours next, so I thought it would be good to give some clarification on how to take these walks.

These aren’t guided tours at a set time; they are audio tracks you listen to as you walk through Abney Park Cemetery independently whenever you wish to! (As long as the park is open!)

The walks are guided in the sense I give directions on where to go within the audio tracks, but otherwise the journey is up to you as a private experience.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have: Romany.Reagan.2012@live.rhul.ac.uk

Audio Walk: Abney Rambles – Thoughts on Mourning

This audio walk is a meditation on modern versus Victorian mourning practices. Interweaving quotes from then and now, with stories, the walk is set to the music of The Black Heart Procession, with exit music ‘Dance While the Sky Crashes Down’, by Jason Webley.

This audio walk is the performed life story of Frank and Susannah Bostock, a famous travelling circus and menagerie couple, buried in Abney Park Cemetery. Frank was a famous lion tamer, and the Bostocks were part of the founding members of Dreamland Amusement Park, Coney Island, New York.

This walk is a love story, but not a simple one.
