A Get Together of Colourful People in Londons Old Spitalfields Market
If you’re ever feeling down and need a quick pick-me-up, head on over to Colour Walk in the Old Spitalfields Market. This unique event takes place every third Thursday of the month, and it’s a celebration of colour! People come dressed in their brightest and most colourful clothes, and it’s a great way to brighten up any day. It’s not even a walk – it’s more of a get together! So if you’re looking for something fun to do, be sure to check out Colour Walk in Spitalfields Market.
What is Colour?
Colour has the ability to affect our moods and emotions. Certain colours can make us feel happy, while others can make us feel sad. Colour also has the ability to affect our physical well-being. For example, blue is known to have a calming effect, while red is known to be energizing.
About the Colour Walk
It was started a few years ago by two ladies who had market stalls in Old Spitalfields Market. Mei-Hui Liu had a fashion pop up store and together with Sue Kreitzman, they dressed up in colourful clothes. The Colour walk was born from this happy accident.
If you want to go to the Colour Walk, it takes place in Old Spitalfields Market close to Liverpool Street Station. A short 5 – 10 minute walk. Anyone is invited, photographers and people who want to dress up.
Follow the London Colour Walk Facebook Page for more information, but it happens each month on the 3rd Thursday.
Here are some of my favourite photographs from previous walks; I have been photographing this event for the last five years. You always come away with great shots.
