Artsline has been established for 25 years, founded in 1981 with the objective of facilitating access to arts and entertainment venues for all disabled people nationally, and their families. Our aim is to further the inclusion of this group into the wider cultural life of London and improve their quality of life by providing them with the information they need to plan their leisure activities and visits to the Capital. This is achieved through Artsline’s comprehensive online database of accessible venues and events via our website and for those unable to access a computer through our telephone service. As pioneers in the field of disabled access we have built a database of over 1,400 venues and are currently expanding this to cover arts and entertainment venues outside Greater London, including all cinemas who are members of the Cinema Exhibitors Associations (CEA).

We hope that our Sponsored Walk will not only raise awareness of the needs of disabled people but raise essential funds to enable Artsline to continue to provide an excellent service to them.

You are therefore invited to participate on Sunday 11 November, 2007 meeting at 12 noon from The Globe Theatre (London Borough of Southwark) to the London Eye (London Borough of Lambeth) and back.

The walk we have selected has a wide range of established Arts & Entertainment venues that are at the heart of London’s cultural heritage. All of the venues have access and facilities for disabled people that were not available when they were originally erected so reflect the work that Artsline and similar organisations of disabled people have done over the years to create an inclusive environment for everyone. Starting at the Globe Theatre - a replica Elizabethan style theatre opened in 1997. The Tate Modern which has an impressive collection of Contemporary Art. Other buildings and open spaces of interest along the way are the Oxo Tower, an Art Deco Style building with an interesting history, the Bernie Spain Gardens, Gabriel’s Wharf with shops, studios, bars, restaurants and a beautiful view of St. Paul’s, the internationally acclaimed National Theatre, which houses three theatres under one roof and presents Classics, Comedies, new writing, plays for children and musicals, BFI Southbank, Southbank Centre (Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and The Hayward) and the London Eye. From this point of the route we then return to the Globe and sign off.

All are welcome, non disabled and disabled people, their families, friends and people who have an interest in this area of London.

Take part and have fun, we think you will enjoy the experience – this is a particularly interesting walk and will leave you with the rest of the day to explore the area at your leisure.

There is a sponsorship form available at as well as details on how to make an online donation.

On behalf of all Artsline Team.
