Please join us at the  SPITALFIELDS LIFE STORYTELLING PARTY next Saturday 15th September at 3 o’clock sharp, at 63 Redchurch St, hosted by Forster Inc & The Literary Platform.

Come and be regaled by storytellers from the pages of Spitalfields Life – including JOAN ROSE, who grew up in the Boundary Estate in the nineteen thirties, VISCOUNTESS BOUDICA, trendsetter and collector of domestic appliances, HENRIETTA KEEPER, octogenarian ballad singer, and KING SOUR, rapper of Bethnal Green, among others.

This event is part of a day of activities comprising the REDCHURCH ST PARTY which runs from midday until evening on Saturday 15th September.


Joan Rose‘s grandparents opened the grocers on Calvert Ave in 1900 and her father ran it until 1966.

Viscountess Boudica has the best collection of vintage domestic appliances in East London.

Henrietta Keeper was in the Tate & Lyle concert party for thirty years and now sings at E. Pellicci.

King Sour DA MC, rapper of Bethnal Green, wants to talk about human dignity.
