'Memoirs of an East End Guttersnipe' talk - Saturday 28th September

As part of the Clapton Festival, Brian Walker will be giving a talk entitled "Memoirs of an East End Guttersnipe". 


It will take place at the Levy Centre, 18-24 Lower Clapton Road, E5 opposite the Kings Hall Leisure Centre) at 3.00pm on Saturday 28th September.


Brian, whose skills as a traditional sign painter continue to enliven the local street-scape, still lives a stone's throw from the former Lea Bridge home where he was born in 1938. His popular website "Tales of the Old East End" features reminiscences and anecdotes about the people and places which formed the backdrop of his early years.


Do come along to hear about such characters as The Clapton Cowboy Tex Withers, Jenny Pepper'ole and the Great Battle of Lea Bridge, and the Champion Female Boxer of Britain May Nelson (see photograph).
