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.
