Event Details

Guided walk around Archway to discover Islington’s peacemakers and community activists

Join us for the unveiling of the newly restored statue by Kevin Atherton of Philip Noel- Baker in Elthorne Park before exploring the rich history of peace and community activism around Archway on this guided walk. We look at some of the pioneers of pacifism including Fenner Brockway and the international peacemaker Noel -Baker; the walk also celebrates community involvement in the shaping of today’s Archway, such as the battle against road widening and insensitive slum clearance, and the many activist organisations such as CND Anti Apartheid and Pluto Press which have links with the area.
