Roger Mills: Everything Happens in Cable Street
There are other stories of East London’s Cable Street apart from the famous Battle of 1936, when locals saw off the fascists. Then a Jewish area, it later became a red-light district and the book and film ‘To Sir, With Love’
is set there.
Author Roger Mills talks about the above and his own experiences with the Basement Writers, Wilton’s Music Hall, the Community Gardens, the edgy Artists’ Studios and the creation of the Cable Street Mural.
