Francesca Panetta

Francesca Panetta is joined by Joanna Smith from English Heritage for a tour of the buildings at the heart of the furniture trade in Victorian and Edwardian Shoreditch. Brad Lochore from the campaign group OPEN Shoreditch and George Galloway MP for Bethnal Green and Bow argue for sustainable development on the advancing City Fringe. Children’s Laureate and Hackney resident Michael Rosen performs his agitprop Regeneration Blues, recorded at a recent OPEN event at Cafe OTO.  Plus we visit the art gallery FormContent, a curatorial project space in Ridley Road.

Joanna Smith’s furniture tour was organised by the Hackney Society.  For more walking tours visit their website.

    Laptops take a bunch of high-performance computer systems and cram it in
    a tiny space.

    A structured writing outline is going to be necessary
    for your skillful essay writing paper. This tells a good deal about which kind of gathering is usually to be
    expected and what kind of personalities that they are going to encounter.

    the payments are created, the unscrupulous individuals
    turn off their sites and disappear. The lion gobbled the gazelle
