Not to be confused with Field Day which took place last May, Field Trip Day is a technological treasure hunt around east London in which explorers use their phones to discover new places and information about the area. It is all based around the Field Trip Day app, which acts as an interactive smartphone guide book for tourists and residents alike. This Saturday, you are invited to join a group of field trippers to hunt down history, take part in challenges and set your own paths around the streets of the East End. Sister events are also taking place across the pond in Brooklyn on Saturday and next month in Seattle and Los Angeles.
Field Trip Day is in Shoreditch this Saturday from 3-5.30pm, followed by an after party. Register for free here. For a taste of what to expect, check out this video of last year’s event:
