Hidden Histories Walking Tour

Explore the diverse histories of Cambridge.

  • 11th February 2024 - 11th February 2024
  • 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Unearth the stories of those who are often left out of traditional narratives of Cambridge: Women, people of colour, and LGBTQIA+ individuals. This guided journey around the city will go back in time to highlight the many ways women have historically experienced the urban space and family life, uncover how masculinities have shaped and been shaped by the city landscape, and discuss queer experiences in the city.

Together we will analyse the urban landscape, discuss gendered geographies, and push back on social expectations.
