About Jane’s Walk
In 2011, Colchester hosted the UK’s first Jane’s Walk weekend; two days of local walks led by local people, taking place simultaneously around the world, celebrating the legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs (1916-2006), and 2018 will mark the 102nd anniversary of her birth and 12th year of the festival internationally.
