Take a stroll through Spitalfields and find out more about The Huguenots (French Protestants) who sought out sanctuary in the area, plus the Irish, Jewish, Bangladeshi and West Indian communities that later made it their home. The 90 minute tour will make a number of stops which include a Jewish soup kitchen, Spitalfields master silk weavers' house, east London pockets brimming with Irish history, and Brick Lane, where tantalising flavours of the world can be found. The event is part of the Huguenot Summer Festival which will see a programme of talks and workshops take place, celebrating the lives and talents their community. Advanced booking is recommended.
