London’s street markets are a cherished and historic part of the capital’s neighbourhoods, valued by tourists and locals alike as an essential aspect of London’s character. But can they survive in today’s overheated London economy as anything more than an expensive plaything for the better-off?

Julian Dobson will look at some of the pressures and tensions facing London markets and ask what they tell us about how we define and create value in the 21st century, who creates that value, and who benefits from it.

Julian Dobson is the author of How to Save Our Town Centres. He is a writer, speaker and commentator on regeneration, placemaking and social policy. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a board member of the Centre for Local Economic Strategies and an adviser to Sheffield University’s Department of Town and Regional Planning.
