12 June In Other People’s Shoes
East Tilbury – In Other People’s Shoes
Saturday 12th June 1 – 4pm
Starts: Bata Memorial Gardens
Ends: Coalhouse Fort, or optional return walk via the sea wall.
Join us for a walk around East Tilbury exploring the residential, industrial and social legacy of Thomas Bata’s Utopian vision from the 1930s. We will visit the factory, hotel and Bata Memorial Park before ending at Coalhouse Fort for afternoon tea.
During the walk, Sadie Hasler will lead a conversation, asking you to put yourselves in the shoes of your role model. What do you aspire to achieve? What can we achieve here by walking together?
There is an option to travel off the beaten track for a scenic sea-wall return walk to the memorial gardens.
