Bankside Ghostsigns Walk

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 20th Sep 2017

Whispers of advertising past are the focus of this walking tour through Bankside, taking in some of London’s best ghostsigns (painted signs, fading on walls). These are used to explore local, craft and advertising history through their unique stories and survival against the odds.

Described as ‘fascinating’ by Londonist, and awarded the Certificate of Excellence (2015; 2016; 2017) on Trip Advisor, the tours will inspire you to start spotting ghostsigns everywhere you go with an appreciation of their history and place in contemporary urban streetscapes.

The tours are led by Sam Roberts, a.k.a. Mr Ghostsigns, curator of the History of Advertising Trust Ghostsigns Archive and author of numerous articles and book contributions on the topic.

The tours, which includes a set of London Ghostsigns postcards, costs £15.00 per person and last 2-2.5 hours.

Cost: £15
