Cries of London: Spitalfields Life Chit Chats: Billingsgate Market

The Gentle Author of the popular blog Spitalfields Life has gained an extraordinary following in recent years, by writing hundreds of lively pen portraits of the infinite variety of people who live and work in the East End of London.

In a series of three Chit Chats, we introduce characters from these pages. Traders, porters and café owners from three of London’s most iconic wholesale markets – BillingsgateSmithfield and New Spitalfields – come together to share stories. These vibrant markets are not just places of commerce but spaces for cultural interchange and are an integral part of London's characterful history.

Free admission; advance booking recommended.

*A postage fee of £1 applies for sending out tickets booked online or over the telephone. If you would rather collect tickets from venue then please select this option at time of booking.
