Join stand up tour guide and lifelong local Alan Gilbey on a short stroll through the side streets of social history then on to a library of secret stories where many other East End writers and performers await to tell you tales less told. During your encounters, myths will be busted, Jack London stalked, Skeleton armies will march and the true identity of Jack The Ripper will not even be considered in this magical mix of mystery walking tour and miniature history lectures.

"Horrible histories for grown-ups" - a member of the public.

"I am a professional historian and this walk is painful to me" - another one.

Alan Gilbey is a Bafta winning screen writer and Spitalfields resident. For a decade he ran cult comedy history walks around his area and these form the basis of his recently published book East End Backpassages: An Explorer's Guide.
