Forthcoming CPCA & other Crystal Palace events:



Crime, Poverty and Curry
 Sunday 5th April 2009 at 10.30 am
 Meeting Point: Outside Aldgate East tube station


Please join us on Sunday morning 5th April 2009 for our next Peter Grant walk.

Peter has kindly offered to conduct us on another of his walks of adventure and discovery through the unfamiliar back streets of London. This year the area of exploration will be Whitechapel in the East End of London and feature Jack the Ripper, the Krays, the Elephant Man and what has been described as a hotbed of villainy where women sold themselves for a few pence, thieves hung around every corner and in the back alleys there was garrotting - Samuel Raphael 'East End Underworld' (1981).

The walk will also consider the poverty of the area and those who sought to alleviate it, from Vladimir Lenin to Clement Atlee.

We shall meet at 10.20am for a 10.30 start outside Aldgate East tube station (District Line) on Whitechapel High Street, south side. (Take the left exit out of the tube station.)

As usual, the walk will end at lunchtime with major debate and discussion around a suitable pub table complete with resplendent cuisine.

Cost - 6 members, 7 non-members, including a guarantee that all participants will enjoy themselves. (Victuals and beverages not included.) Please book early as places will be limited
