PRESS RELEASE CoolTan Arts Midnight Largactyl Shuffle: Summer Solstice Saturday 18 June 2011, 23.45pm for 12:00 midnight start Meet at Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG (main entrance on Holland Street) End at Maudsley Hospital, Denmark Hill, London SE5 8AZ Night time is the time for the Outsider, the sleepless, the restless, and the wanderer. Charles Dickens, an avid nightwalker, asked: “Are not the sane and the insane equal at night as the sane lie a dreaming?” Join us in the footsteps of past and present nightwalkers; learn about artists and writers who have made moonlit London their own. We will also be celebrating the summer solstice, marking the shortest night of the year, with a look at the magic of pagan midsummer. A previous walker said about the Midnight Walk: “It was brilliant, I really liked it. I love the Midnight Walk, it’s so nice and cool.”...” It’s inspiring to learn about the area I live in. Southwark is not very famous from a touristic point of view and has a bad reputation, but there is so much history. I came to learn new things and liked the quirky stories.” Join CoolTan Arts for a guided Summer Solstice Midnight walk, where you can explore the urban psycho-geography of South London and learn about local history and familiar landmarks under the moonlight. Participate in this unique procession from the „powerhouse‟ Tate Modern to the home of contemporary psychiatry, the Maudsley Hospital. At the end of the walk, we‟ll have the opportunity to rest at the chapel of Maudsley Hospital. Walkers meet at 23.45pm at the main entrance of Tate Modern and finish the walk in the wee hours of Sunday at the Maudsley Hospital, where you‟ll have the possibility to rest at the chapel for a few hours. Feel free to bring sandwiches, tea, coffee for the route (no alcohol please). If you cannot find the group of walkers, please call us on 0798 565 8443.
