THE GREAT SPITALFIELDS HUGUENOT FEST…Don’t even think of missing it.All the details are on the website! And very exciting – talks by Dan Cruickshank and Tessa Murdoch (and me!), walks around Sp;italfields every day (just turn up!). Or book if you’re a group. Events at the V&A, Bishopsgate Institute, Guildhall. Walks are not only about the Huguenots but also the various immigrant groups who’ve settled in Spitalfields. Hear all about the fashionable silks the wealthy commissioned, how the weavers lived and died, the other industries the Huguenots excelled in. The choice is enormous with speakers such as Dan Cruickshank & Tessa Murdoch. But you can also just turn up for a walk without booking. I am doing a talk on the Spitalfields silkweavers at the Guildhall 2 pm, 9 April at the Guildhall, Aldermanbury, the City. No need to book for this one and free!
