About the Event
The LCF is proud to host the annual Limehouse History Night at St Anne's church on Sunday November 27th starting at 7:30pm. If you're new to our community, a longtime resident or just a friend, this is a great event to meet and chat with your neighbors, while learning about the role that our community has played in history. In this talk Professor Alastair Owens and Livonia Ayugi-Okello from Queen Mary University of London will share the findings of their recent research on some of the remarkable individuals buried in St Anne’s crypt and churchyard. In the second half of the evening, Alastair will also present his work on the archaeology of poor households in mid nineteenth-century Limehouse, providing fresh insights in what it was like to live in dockside Victorian London.
Alastair Owens is a professor at Queen Mary Universityand President of The Geographical Association, as a well respected and highly qualified scholar, his work as a historical geographer and social and economic historian has focused on Britainc1800, with a particular interest in London. His current research in Anglicanism, the inclusive heritage of East London, and the inherited wealth of Britain, 1850-1930 focus a light on the historical geographies of home, family and material culture.
The event will benefit “Care for St Anne’s”, and Rector Richard Bray will update us on the progress to fund the renovations of the great stained glass window of St Anne’s. There will be refreshment bar serving drinks throughout the evening. A great way to spend a dreary winter’s night – meeting your neighbors, learning about our shared history, raising a glass while building our community. See you there!
