To trace the paths of birds would be to envisage the city in an entirely different form – Peter Ackroyd

In his biography of London, Peter Ackroyd claims that pigeons fly particular routes across the city. Pigeon Patrol follows one of these fly lines, linking Camden People’s Theatre with Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath – a natural path through an urban environment.

See the city from the pigeons’ point of view. Follow them on their journey north, taking in parks, trees and other natural spaces along the way. Pigeon Patrol offers a fresh experience of nature, landscape and atmosphere in a man-made world. Gameshow began walking Pigeon Patrols in 2015 with literary walker Henry Eliot (Curiocity).

This informally-led walk lasts approximately two hours, beginning at Camden People’s Theatre (NW1 2PY) and ending at Kenwood House (NW3 7JR). Please wear strong shoes and warm clothes, ready for the weather.

If you are a wheelchair user or have limited mobility, please phone the Box Office on 0207 419 4841 for more details.

About the company

Gameshow is run by Matt Ryan and Matthew Evans. We have created theatre and performance projects together since 2008. Our work ranges from participatory projects and classic plays to new writing and performance installations. We won the People’s Theatre Award for Grown Up, which sold out at CPT in 2016. We are currently touring our latest stage show Dancing Bear, Dancing Bear.

Henry Eliot is the co-author of Curiocity: In Pursuit of London, recently published by Particular Books. He has led guided walks through London for Google, the City of London, City Lit and the cheese shop in Leadenhall Market. He is the Creative Editor of Penguin Classics at Penguin Random House.
