High Streets Heritage Action Zone Cultural Programme
Celebrating the history of Petticoat Lane
Petticoat Lane is special because of working class and migrant communities. From the Huguenots in the 14th Century, through to the Bangladeshi communities of today, the area has consistently formed a space of refuge and welcome.
The People’s History of Petticoat Lane project, is part of a Historic England managed High Streets Heritage Action Zone project, celebrating, preserving, and highlighting the uniqueness of this area.
Toynbee Hall, in partnership with Tower Hamlets Council, and other local art and culture partners will be offering a programme of community-led cultural activities and events. As part of this programme, a community decision-making group made up of local stallholders, businesses, creatives and residents will collectively design, curate and deliver a vibrant cultural programme.
