A High Street Odyssey

15 Feb 2013

The landscape is so familiar: the bricked-over thoroughfare, the bins, the bollards, the benches, the big name brands. What histories, what mysteries lie behind our pedestrianised shopping centres? Who were Mr Boot and Mr Smith? Who is Claire, and when did she get so into accessories? And who is here now? What’s that man doing? And what on earth does that woman have in her handbag?

A High Street Odyssey is a witty and intimate promenade audio-tour for groups of 30. The Great British High Street will never look the same again.
