Event Details

Step back into Galle Fort’s recent past with Saheedullah Saheed of the Galle Fort Residents’ Association. Beginning at the junction of Lighthouse and Pedlar Streets, long-time Fort resident Saheedullah shares recollections of a childhood spent playing cricket on leafy cobbled lanes, sipping hot tea from street-side stalls and gathering in groups to place bets on the horse races. A rare insight into the Fort’s 20th-century community, complete with shoe shops, family-owned barbers, jewellers and more.
