Artists Aundre Goddard and Richard Bentley’s sound walk combines music, sound and audio drama to tell the story of London Street’s history and community.

Take your smartphone to London Street (or listen at home) to enjoy a self-guided, immersive sound walk. ‘A Reading of London Street’ is a dream-like journey past the Black History Mural and Global Café to immerse yourself in the evocative sounds that capture the street’s unique identity, from the historic Huntley and Addington House to the vibrant music of the street’s iconic nightspots.
