Robert Elms

London Made Us

In conversation with Samira Ahmed

Sunday 6th October 2019, 6.15-7.15pm

William Morris Tent


Join this BBC Radio London broadcaster on his personal journey – part anecdotal, part impressionistic – through London's constantly shifting cityscape.

In London Made Us: A Memoir of a Shape-Shifting City, Elms takes us back through time and place to myriad Londons. He is our guide through a place that has seen scientific experiments conducted in subterranean lairs, a small community declare itself an independent nation and animals of varying exoticism roam free through its streets; a place his great-great-grandfather made the Elms’ home over a century ago and a city that has borne witness to epoch- and world-changing events.

London Made Us is a marvellously detailed and wonderfully evocative memoir of London trembling on the border of extinction. Our tears and dreams are made of this.’

– Peter Ackroyd

Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.

This event is sponsored by C S Architects.
