The Britpop Camden walk is an example of how GPS technology can be used to create an immersive audio experience which can be ‘pinned’ to specific locations. Join me on a nostalgia-fuelled jaunt around Britpop lalaland circa 1995. There is a modest charge for this walk.

I had the honour of living and loving here that year. It was the height of Britpop and I was living in its epicentre; what a great place to be a music fan. By chance I’d found a lovely double room to rent in Primrose Hill. I had the best of both worlds. Rough, riotous Camden Town and gentile, pretty Primrose Hill.

I was a student at the time but my eyes were on the future – I wanted to make websites for popstars. I struggled to learn HTML, preferring to spend my evenings chatting up boys in Fred Perry shirts. I did end up working with My Life Story and some of my personal anecdotes about them will be shared en route.

You can download a Spotify playlist to listen to which is a nice accompaniment to this walk. I recommend you listen to it before the walk to get you in the mood!
