Custom House Community Walks by Custom House Bookshop

Location: TBC

This project will bring us a series of ‘Custom House Community Walks’ revealing the fascinating history and heritage of this area to the local community through a series of walks and talks. Due to the current restrictions this project is on hold.

Custom House Community Walks will be presented by inclusive and independent local business, Custom House Bookshop, together with Footprints of London.

Recently formed by long-time local residents in Custom House in Newham, Custom House Bookshop is a women-led, BAME-majority organisation offering an inclusive place to read, talk and learn. The bookshop is in its infancy but has big ambitions and will focus on four main areas of interest: literature, events, activities related to BAME, disabled and LGBT as well as Women’s Issues.

Please note: this event is currently on hold due to the current restrictions. Please check back soon for further developments.
