Unripped - story telling, walking tour and exhibition

Join us for an immersive evening into East End Victorian history on the final night of the exhibition. Storyteller Vanessa Woolf will be leading a walking tour around the locality, ending up at the exhibition.

Catherine Eddowes was a traveler and poet who loved to dance and laugh. She was also the mother of three children and carried the initials of her first true love tattooed on her forearm. Come and celebrate her life -and the lives of her cohorts- in words, light, flowers and music on the evening of 8th July 2016.

With storyteller Vanessa Woolf and poet John Crow.
