Viv Walk 2022

As part of our Festival of Sleep, and in association with our Behind the Door Campaign to support women homelessness, come and join us for a picnic and a walk around the west end, guided by one of the Museum of the Home’s friends, Viv.

Based on personal experience, the tour centres on Viv’s recollections of her life living on the streets, her most memorable highlights, the famous people she has met and interesting tales. Viv describes her tours as “Tours with a Difference” to highlight the uniqueness of her historical walks. Through the tours, she shares the precariousness of living on the streets and the survival tactics one has to adopt to survive.

Read more about Viv's story here. You can also hear more from Viv in this episode of Up With The Lark podcast.
