A unique opportunity to visit an impressive art deco building in the heart of Wood Green, recently transformed into Green Rooms Arts Hotel. Designed in 1930 as the HQ of the North Met Electricity Company, which powered electric trams across North London, the tour shows the Art Deco original detailing and tiling, the newly converted bedrooms and the delightful boardroom on the top floor.



Newington’s Radicals       NEW WALK

19 November    11.30 am     £10


This walk introduces you to radicals who made Newington Green and Canonbury their home. After 1660, dissenting ministers were forced to live five miles from their former parishes, so many congregated around the Unitarian church on the Green. Mary Wollstonecraft’s connections with the area are well known, but did you know that Lenin once attended a conference in Southgate Road, and that conscientious objectors were attacked there during the First World War? Dalston Synagogue in Poet’s Road was home to a thriving Jewish community, and George Orwell wrote his masterpiece 1984 in Canonbury.
