The Huguenots of Spitalfields
Huguenots of Spitalfields celebrates the Huguenots, French Protestants who settled in this country and were our first refugees, and Spitalfields, where many of them settled. Through our programme of walks, talks and events, we explore the lives of the people who inhabited these streets, their contributions and their legacy.
