Somers Town history
A great Panel Discussion with
Book on Eventbrite
‘100 years of Social Housing’ can be found in Somers Town, and we have the Culture Editor of the Tribune Owen Hatherley, John Boughton (‘Municipal Dreams’) and Professor Esther Leslie to bring their insights to bear. We will also be launching our publication.
It takes place at the Francis Crick Institute on December 3rd at 5.30 for 6pm start to the talk.
Somers Town is in the news for all the wrong reasons: threatened by recent developments. Yet this is a cohesive community and a living legacy of 20th Century social housing pioneers whose work – every example of social housing from the last 100 years – can be found in this small pocket.
This panel takes a look…
So it’s appropriate we explore and honour this narrative thread of social justice, as well as help maintain a unique working class identity, in a permanent gallery space in the place where so much originated: Somers Town.
