SOMERVILLE LONDON GROUP

6.00pm Spitalfields Walk

BOOK HERE

Enjoy a spring evening with the Somerville London Group.

We are delighted that Marilyn Collis has designed another fascinating walk for our Group. Members may remember the excellent Mayfair walk in 2021, St James’s in 2014, the Shakespeare walk in 2016, and Roman London in 2018. As we venture back into group events, we have aimed for a date and time to miss crowds and our number will be limited to 20, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Spitalfields

On: Thursday 28th April at 6pm

This walk will explore the streets of Spitalfields in East London. We have chosen a date when the market is not operating to avoid the crowds and distractions. This area of London has been home to waves of newly arriving refugees ever since the French Huguenots settled here in the late 17th Century. We will hear about the many layers of culture that have blended together, with one building serving as a chapel, a church, and now a mosque. The area is now home to vibrant street art and some stunning restaurants, as well as a vivid and fascinating history. As usual, we will walk for around 2 hours, and finish the evening with drinks in a suitable pub.

Tickets are £20  (this does not include drinks) and ticket holders will receive notice of the meeting point and any further instructions for joining.

Date for the diary :  7th June at the Oxford & Cambridge Club, 6.30pm.

Somerville’s 4 great philosophers of the mid 20thC (Anscombe, Foot, Midgley, Murdoch) have been attracting much attention recently with the publication of two books about their ideas, which changed Oxford Philosophy, and their colourful personal lives.  We are delighted to welcome the author of one of these books, Benjamin Lipscomb, author of The Women Are Up To Something, to talk about this fascinating quartet on 7 June.  Details to be confirmed.
