This is one of a series of four walking workshops.
Please book for free through Eventbrite via the attached link.

Join artist and newsprint enthusiast Eloise Hawser for a series of four different free workshops with guided walks in London’s Docklands, looking at the area’s rich variety of stories, people and places through the lens of local newspapers past and present.
Over a dozen local papers have served the Docklands area since the Victorian era. The four workshops-with-walks will focus on some of the best-known titles, and their complex relationships with local people, political groups, and businesses.
For each event, you and fellow attendees will meet at a key accessible location and use newspapers from Newham’s extraordinary archives to unfold stories steeped in the emotions, drama, politics and pathos of Docklands life through the decades. These news stories will then guide your walk with Eloise to significant local sites, giving you the chance to discover connections between past and present; between newsprint and local people’s lives.

For “Sweet Industry in the Docklands” we will unearth fascinating stories, advertising and editorial from the Docklands News (1983 – 1992), Tate and Lyle Times (1970 – 1983), Newham Recorder (since 1968) and The Port (1977 – 1984). Then join Eloise on a guided walk which takes in Royal Albert Dock, the Tate and Lyle factory site and North Woolwich, old and new industries, labour relations and unexpected heroism.
Saturday 16 October 2021

Meet at Royal Albert Station, Docklands Light Railway
Walk ends at West Silvertown Station, Docklands Light Railway
