The 4th World Congress of Psychogeography in 2019 brings together people from all walks of life to Kirklees this autumn. With a mix of walks and talks, come and find out what it’s all about and take the opportunity to explore new ways of seeing the world around you.
On Saturday 7th September, the Congress will be coming to Brigantia, our making and meeting space in the heart of Dewsbury. See below for the programme of events that will be taking place.
All events are free of charge. However, if you would like to make a donation you will be most welcome. Look out for the Blue Buckets.
Dependent upon weather conditions, some of the walks may pass over damp or difficult terrain, so please dress accordingly.
Participants are welcome to opt in and out at any point or to join us for the whole experience.

There is ample public transport to enable you to reach or depart from particular events.
If you are heading from Huddersfield by train we’re recommending to take the 10:48 from Huddersfield (arrives 11:04). This is the stopping train which is a little slower, but will have the advantage of being relatively quiet and it starts from Huddersfield (Platform 6) so it should be relatively easy to get to it.
The 4th Congress of Psychogeography will be running in Kirklees across the whole weekend of 6th-8th September. Click here to see the weekend’s full programme.
