OUR WHOLESALE MARKET IS CLOSING – WHAT’S BEEN AND WHAT’S NEXT?
Join us on Saturday 26th August for Yard Talk at the Edge. We’re again focusing on our markets as we eat, talk and peruse our collection of photographs, artefacts, film and videos relating to Smithfield. As the final closure and demolition of the site looms, it is a race against time to gather the stories, myths and legends of this unique sub-culture, before it is gone forever. Join a group of archivists, artists and heritage enthusiasts as we explore this hidden world and discuss what we can do to preserve and celebrate the history of the birthplace of our city. We’ll also be reporting on our recent interventions with the Bootsale Band at the Sunday Market. From 2pm, at the Edge, food and refreshments will be provided but, as ever, we’re always pleased if you bring something to contribute. Free entry.
