The Boss of Bethnal Green: Joseph Merceron, the Godfather of Regency London
by Julian Woodford

Meet Joseph Merceron, the Boss of Bethnal Green – the Regency overlord who set the template for criminality and corrupt politics in the East End… 200 years ago Spitalfields was home to Joseph Merceron, gangster and staggeringly corrupt magistrate, who accumulated enormous wealth for half a century while presiding over the creation of London’s poorest slums. Writer Julian Woodford explores his life and legacy. This talk will appeal to all those interested in Regency London and anyone fascinated by the East End’s criminal history.

Copies of the book will be on sale and Julian Woodford will take questions and sign books after the talk.

Tickets £5 in advance.
