London's Industrial Heritage Talk

Historian Geoff Marshall discusses the often-overlooked background of the city

Fun fact: apart from Lancashire, the most Boulton & Watt steam engines were in London. Surprised? Yeah, it’s pretty easy to overlook the industrial significance of London what with all the suits running around these days. Once home to loads of breweries (making a revival lately), even the world’s first plastic was synthesised in East London. Historian Geoff Marshall leads a discussion about the social and political implications from the capital’s heavy industry periods. General admission. Please arrive on time and be sure to mention that you booked with YPlan to avoid the door charge.
