You are invited to an early evening at one of Bethnal Green's most important cultural and social venues. Oxford House has been at the heart of the community since 1884 and offers a wide range of events and activities, as well as facilities for community businesses and organisations.
Published by Pen and Sword, 'The Dark Side of East London' is a study of dark deeds perpetrated east of the City in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It is also a reflection on the character of life in the Tower Hamlets and how it changed by being absorbed into the world's first metropolis.
Alan Tucker's photographs, taken especially for this book, anchor the stories to the present-day East End.
The evening will comprise readings by the author, as well as an opportunity for questions about the book and how it fits in with the ever-increasing interest in local history and heritage, and in how the East End became the East End.
Afterwards there will be the chance for you to grab your very own signed copy of the new book at a discount price. There will also be copies available of David's two collections of short stories, 'Death and the City' and 'Behind the Curtains'.
There is of course no charge for this event, but please book to secure your place.
