Drum Roll Please… We are excited to announce that the  Our Place, Our Story Summer Showcase will take place in our Hall, on Tuesday 20th August between 7-9 pm. That is a 2-hour gathering for the local community to come and feast on not just delicious food provided by local cooks , but a feast for your eyes and ears too!

We’ve had conversations and ran workshops with both young people and over 60s and we visited the local Brownies who were a magic box of imagination! They shared with us the top things they love about Bethnal Green including the nature spots, sports teams, the Multi-Culturalism and the variety of food!  

Our facilitators have connected with 3 local tenants from Hollybush and Teesdale Estate and they have shared a treasure chest of stories from the World War Two Era. The spirit of their stories is incredible as well as the vigour with which the local community “just kept dancing” during troubling times.

The East London Rats will be guiding you through this thrilling showcase and sharing their experiences of life from the areas nooks and crannies.

Whilst pausing to hand over the spotlight to the talent and phenomenal stories of the residents and creatives of Bethnal Green and wider Tower Hamlets.

Travel back in time to Tudor History, accelerating forward to World War 2 and springing in to current day to celebrate local dancers, singers, martial artists, visual artists, campaigners, the Brownies and local cooks who will provide an evening to enliven each and every sense! You will not want to leave Bethnal Green after!

St Margaret's House is delighted to be funded by Tower Hamlets Homes to work in partnership with the Teesdale & Hollybush Tenants Residents Association.
