About the event
The Lee Valley Regional Park was the brainchild of the former Hackney Mayor Lou Sherman. His concept of a smartened up Lee Valley with “jazzy waterside cafes” metastasised into a vast Regional Park with a project to provide leisure facilities to serve the whole of London and beyond. 50 years after the Park Authority produced its first Master Plan, Laurie Elks, long-time critic of the Park Authority, reflects on its achievements and missed opportunities.
There are a limited number of tickets for this event. Entry is Free but Registration is required.
Doors open at 7pm. Talk begins at 7:30pm
