As Crossing the Tees Festival week draws to a close, we bring you two chances to explore together the wildness of our urban environments with Professor Dee Heddon’s ‘Walking Libraries’.

The Walking Library is a library that carries books by foot, a creative research project brings books, reading, and walking into unexpected and dynamic relationships.

The books you’ll read from on these walks range wildly from those which help us see what is sometimes overlooked or under-acknowledged – for example, the variety of wild things growing in vacant lots or the secret lives of pigeons – to dystopian apocalyptic fiction where cities are destroyed but nature survives.

Meet outside the café at South Park Darlington at 11.30am.

This event is also taking place from Stockton Library at 2pm!

Opening Times





Address: South Park Cafe, Darlington, UK
