Celebrate the art of walking with a day of walks, talks and feasting in Birmingham.

This unique event has been organised in collaboration with the National Trust, the Canal & River Trust, IKON Gallery and The Barber Institute of Fine Arts.

It’s a unique and exciting opportunity for the public to experience a relaxed walk through Birmingham whilst appreciating great art.

This will be followed by an autumnal stroll along a scenic stretch of the Birmingham canal to the popular cultural haven, Brindley Place.

The next stop is the Ikon Gallery (Birmingham’s leading contemporary art gallery) for Sunday lunch followed by a tour of the fascinating exhibitions, Yael Bartana: And Europe Will Be Stunned and Arefin & Arefin: The graphic design of Tony Arefin.

Date: Sunday 28th October 2012
