Wednesdays and Fridays



10:30am and 1:30pm


One small action is where it starts. It can be something seemingly insignificant can go on to change the world. Some of the biggest revolutions have started with the smallest actions: an accident.

Work together as a team to take on this interactive mission, throughout the halls of Battersea Arts Centre, to unlock the history of the revolutionary Charlotte Despard and her notorious Despard Club.

No one knows they’re changing the world while they’re doing it.

For KS3 or equivalent.

Designed by Coney Theatre

Duration: 90 mins


Step-Free Access

This event takes place over 3 floors of our building, and will direct all participants to travel via a lift. 

Sensory Access

All the artworks have been designed with different sensory access in mind. The artworks are interactive so you can listen to them, look at them and touch them.

Audio-Free Access

This is designed as an audio tour, but there is a printed text version of the audio script available that can be used instead of the audio.

Blind or Visually Impaired Access

Whilst our trails are very accessible to to blind and visually impaired visitors, navigating your way through the building would prove challenging. We can therefore provide a headphone splitter, to enable visitors to experience the trail with a friend as a guide.
