The revitalisation of Petticoat Lane, London’s oldest Sunday street market still in operation, continues apace with the unveiling next week of the community banners, commemorating many aspects of market life, along Wentworth Street and into Middlesex Street.
The banners project has been spearheaded by the City of London’s community engagement department.
It has also involved Tower Hamlets Council, the Leyden Gallery and the textiles department of London Metropolitan University – as well as many members of the local community and others with fond reminiscences of the market who submitted their thoughts and ideas.
There is an open invitation to the informal launch at 2pm on Wednesday October 13 on the corner of Wentworth and Commercial Street. Or, just pop down and enjoy them at your leisure.
