12pm Cambridge, Castle Mound: Burn British Psychogeography!  -
Performance & Derive

Public book burning of contemporary psychogeographical texts - an
action against gentrificational and recuperational psychogeography on
Castle Hill in Cambridge, the oldest site of Cambridge and key to the
original Roman settlement - and of the legendary Cambridge ley-line.
Fuel to the fire will be the double cross of the union and classics of
contemporary BRITISH recuperational psychogeography of gentrification
such as Sinclair, Self etc... The ashes will then be scattered through
Cambridge on the derive that follows out descent from the ancient
mound...

Free. Meet at Castle Mound, Cambridge. Organised by: Cambridge
Lettrist And Situationist Society

12.40pm Leeds, Kirkgate Market: WorkersLunchTime  - Walk & Feast

It's Terminalia and it's Lunchtime! Meet at 12.40 by the M&S clock, in
the 1904 hall, for a snack-sized, self-generating tour of Kirkgate
Market. Following our noses for about 25 mins, we'll create a
spontaneous platter and then dine on the micro feast. If you can
afford it bring a couple of quid for the kitty.

This tour was first conceived with Katie Etheridge and Simon
Persighetti's for their 'Personal Shopper' project, Compass Festival
2016. By @[log in to unmask] Event is free but tickets are required.
Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/workerslunchtime-tickets-31584915332?aff=es2

5.55pm Leeds, Central Road: "Threshold / Hearth"

David Bollinger will spark off the Beating the Bounds walk with a
short ritual sacrifice to the other Goddess of Psychogeography: Vesta.
Vesta (or Hesta as the Greeks called her) is the goddess of liminal
spaces, thresholds and hearths. Her place was the fireplace, the
central hearth in every home. As another boundary entity she was
responsible for thresholds, the boundary between spaces (Hermes is the
god of travelling across boundaries and you know about Terminus).
Sacrifices to this domestic, very early primitive goddess was often
seen as being done for no reward, literally "going up in smoke."

Please meet in Central Road, Leeds opposite Little Tokyo.

6pm Leeds, Central Road: Beating the Bounds - Circular walk around
medieval boundary of Leeds.

6pm Departure from the midpoint of all the stones in Central Road
(opposite Mrs Athas Cafe and Little Tokyo). 2-3 hrs (easy). Bring
treats to share, flowers to leave and alcoholic or soft drinks to keep
you warm! With events, interventions, and special performances from
local artists. Led by Tim Waters

We will be walking widdershins (anti-clockwise) around the city,
visiting the ancient boundary markers that defined the medieval
boundaries of the city. Traditionally, feasting and dances were
performed during Terminalia at boundary markers, and we will do the
same with things with cake, flowers and a drink! The boundary markers
around Leeds are called bars (gates, possibly that barred off an
entrance) and mark the borders where the city ended and the
countryside began. Some stone markers still exist.

Interventions and Performances during Beating the Bounds:

Simon Bradley will perform a guided tour of his "Pocket Museum of
Displacements" at a location along the walk.

Anzir Boodoo will perform a traditional Roman blessing at the city's
transport termini. The walk may also visit the new glittering southern
entrance to the railway station where an invocation to a Roman river
god will be enacted as we stand over the water.

Event is free, just turn up. Tickets are not required but help plan for numbers.
