Scented Heritage: From The Barking Stink to Capability Brown

Thames Festival Trust's Nikki Shaill

What can we learn about spaces and places by engaging our sense of smell? Become a scent detective with Nikki Shaill, project manager for Thames Festival Trust's The Barking Stink. Nikki will share olfactory facts about the growing role of scent and smell in heritage and creative projects, plus invite you to take part in some sensory experiments. Explore the festival site's own unique scent imprints and stories through sniffing and whiffing as you walk. All ages welcome. "The Barking Stink" is a scented heritage project run by Thames Festival Trust, with support from National Lottery Heritage Fund"
