» Walk With Me

Think you know your city? Think again! Our Walk With Me actor-guided audio tours allow you to experience Coventry neighbourhoods as you've never experienced them before!


#

»#1 Spon End

Your guide is engineer and radio enthusiast Herbert Cleaver, who has invented a device he calls 'The AudioScoper' in order to listen into the sounds and stories of the past. Herbert's device proves his theory that 'sound waves never die' - walk with him as he revels in picking up unexpected traces of Spon End's watery past.

»#2 Stoke

Soundwaves never die. We can’t see them, we can’t touch them, but with the right bit of kit we can tune into them. Luckily, our guide Ruby has her Grandma’s Auditory Imprinter to do just that: walk with her to untangle the crossed wires and dial into the sounds of the people and stories of Stoke’s past – and even sometimes its future...

#3 Willenhall

What makes Willenhall special? Find out when you listen in to some of the quirky stories of our neighbourhood during this hour-long FREE - and socially distanced - guided walk around Willenhall. The group wears headphones and takes a trip through time with our friendly guide Annie, mixing history with imagination about what the future may hold for the area.

Fri 9th October, 10.30am and 1.30pm

Sat 10th, Sat 17th, Sun 18th October at 11.30am and 2.30pm
