Harringay online

Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Free online talk about the creation of Clissold Park tonight (6th August) at 7pm

45min free talk, streamed live on YouTube, describing in vivid detail the dramatic campaign in 1886-8 to save Clissold Park from development.

Clissold Park wouldn’t exist if it hadn’t been for a passionate local campaign in the 1880s to save to then private estate from development.

As the last remaining open space in the area, the prospect of losing it to the “jerry builder” prompted concerned local residents to mobilise and lobby various bodies to raise the funds to purchase the park for the public.

In this 45min presentation, Amir Dotan will describe the story of the turbulent campaign using rich archival material, which came to light only a few years ago. 

The talk will begin at 7pm on Aug 6th, 2020.

Please post questions you have in the chat during the talk.

A link to the live stream is included at the bottom of the confirmation email you'll receive when you book a ticket.
