Somers Town History Club (STHC) was set up by seven locals in 2016.
‘Capturing Somers Town Stories… by locals for locals…’ That bit is crucial. This is our guiding spirit – we believe in local ownership.
We have talks by authors, academics, archivists and walks by guides, and films. It’s the stories in histories.
And we have big ideas and a vision…
In 2019 we’re working towards that space for us: a museum and conservation. Our narrative is clear: this patch links Wollstonecraft to Jellicoe, priests in pubs to drinkers in prams; Shelley to Sainsbury, urban romantics to urban reformers. Radical thinkers, radical housing and radical community.
If you can help in drawing up that story, then contact us.
Look out for our events, exhibitions and workshops in 2019.
Watch this space.
