Promenade en blanc !

 Chers amis, flâneuses et flâneurs

We are back face to face and side by side for our first ever Promenade en blanc this Saturday!

When we announced this event we said we would keep its location a mystery until close to the date and we can now reveal that we will be walking a section of Belfast's Maritime Mile. Here's a link for more information: https://maritime-mile.com/

We'll meet up at 11am on Saturday 21 May at the Big Fish near Corporation Square; cross the Lagan Footbridge and make our way to the berth of the SS Nomadic. We will pause there to enable participants to get refreshments nearby and chat about what we've been up to since we last met in person.

Then retracing our footsteps across the footbridge we can check out the dockside photo exhibition, Wilder Mann, by French photographer Charles Fréger before concluding our walk back at the Big Fish at around 12.45pm.

In keeping with the tradition of the Pique-nique en blanc, please try if you can to wear something white and, as this is Belfast, remember to rainproof your walk.

Coming? Well we look forward to seeing you at 11am at the Big Fish!
