Refugee Week: Huguenot Footsteps: City of London
17 June 2021 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
The contribution the Huguenots made to commerce and banking in the City of London was enormous. It covered insurance, stockbroking, finance and commerce. You will walk through some of the alleyways of the City and hear the story of the characters who have played their part in the creation of the financial centre of this country. From the amazing dress of Spitalfields silk worn by Mrs Fanshawe at Mansion House to the location of the hugely important Threadneedle Street Church you will be fascinated to hear more about Huguenots in the life of the City of London.
Please note that due to the current COVID-19 guidelines we aren’t able to accept additional turn-ups on the day.
