Battle of Cable Street 75th Anniversary

It's 75 years since 1936's Battle of Cable Street.
On Sunday 2nd October the occasion will be marked by events centred in and around Wilton's Music Hall, which I have heard, has finally raised sufficient funding to keep going (though that doesn't mean 'job done', so please keep involved).
There will be a market on the day and I will be there with my Amelia Parker clay pipe jewellery, made using fragments of discarded clay pipes dating from as far back as the 16th century, collected along the Thames foreshores close to Cable Street.
Info about the weekend's events here.
See you there!
Some great historical info and archive images from 1936 here.
And some great shots of Dave Binnington's commemorative mural here.
