Event Details

Beyond the control of the City of London, Islington has always harboured radical thinkers and writers – let’s pay them a lunchtime visit…

Just moments from the bustle of Angel junction there are oases of calm and creativity.

Meander along the course of the New River to discover:

  • the man who influenced the French Revolution from a local pub
  • the tireless dedication of a great writer to his troubled sister
  • the chequered history of London’s favourite canal
  • the story of Shakespeare’s missing theatre
  • the Angel’s hidden angel

AND a brutal murder.



(Tuesday) 13:05 - 14:00
