Graffiti Tour of Shoreditch and Lunch at L'Anima Cafe

Join alumni of Princeton and Georgetown for a fascinating tour of the graffiti art of Shoreditch with the immensely knowledgeable and entertaining guides of Art History UK, Georgia Ciancimino and Lucy Britton. If you've ever wondered about the how's, the why's and the history of East End graffiti art, this is THE tour for you!

On this tour we’ll duck and weave through the energetic streets of London’s East End to discover an eclectic mix of hidden street art treasures.  Located a stone’s throw away from the financial district of the City we’ll learn how Spitalfields has been transformed over the years by immigration. We’ll discuss the origins of street art and see some vibrant, whacky and subversive graffiti that speaks volumes of the creative genius that has bubbled in the east-end over the past few decades.

After the glorious walk, we will all relax and enjoy a splendid lunch at L'Anima Cafe, the more informal arm of the award-winning L'Anima restaurant. In our honour, they have created two speciality cocktails for the event - the Hoya Tiger and the Tiger La Hoya! Lunch will be a set, three-course meal with vegetarian option.

The combined cost for both the tour and the lunch is only £40.

We can only accommodate 20 alumni from each club, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

We will leave a waitlist open after the first 20 are booked in case of cancellations. Also, please sign up to the waitlist if you would like to register interest for another similar event in the spring.
