Dan Cruickshank: Spitalfields - The History of a Nation in a Handful of Streets
Architectural historian and television presenter Dan Cruickshank will tell the story of Spitalfields, where he has lived for the past four decades. Starting in Roman times and continuing right up to the present day, Cruickshank will explain how Spitalfields’ streets have evolved, including the transformation he himself witnessed, from when he first arrived during the 1970s and encountered a war-damaged collection of semi-derelict houses, to the vibrant community it is today.
