Lunchbreak Marches

Edinburgh & The Lothians Discussion Walk

Event Summary

A series of conversations in parks, reconsidering their relationship to the city through walking their boundaries and gates – their marches.


12:30pm BST


04 June, 11 June, 18 June

Additional Location Info

By its nature, this event is not universally accessible and this is something the walks will explore, at times informed, guided, and led by whoever comes. Some certainties are that we’ll be a small group of likely strangers talking in English, walking up to 1.5 miles over 45 minutes, over a mostly flat terrain of tarmac, dirt, and grass. If there is anything you wish to discuss about your access to the event before coming, please do so, and we can design the walk together with these in mind.

Lunchbreak Marches

Can we find a more honest and interesting relationship to the city in our parks than just retreat and escape?

Every Friday we take a lunchtime break and go for a walk in a nearby park around its edges, exploring how it withdraws from or reaches out to meet the rest of the city.

4th June: Pilrig Park

11th June: Lochend Park

18th June: Dalmeny Street Park

Email to book a place on your chosen walk. Attendance is limited to 5 participants per walk on a first-come-first-served basis. Places will be limited to a choice of 1 walk per person but may be opened up, depending on uptake. They are open to anyone, but the event is designed for those already familiar with the park.
