Our London - Moving with Owen Jones, Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi, Daniel Trilling and Rachel Shabi

Wednesday 30th March 2016 6:30pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

In the run-up to the Mayoral and Assembly elections in May, Compass and Verso Books in association with Foyles, are hosting a series of conversations asking how could we organise our communities and our city differently?

 

London is a city of constant movement. People and capital have always flowed in and out of the city but London is becoming less accessible for many. Social mobility is decreasing and wealth and public funds are concentrated in London, a place that’s increasingly driving out people who can no longer afford to live here. London continues its long history of immigration since ancient times but the dangerous distinction between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ migrants has found a foothold in the popular narrative. So what happens when new people arrive here? And how do we start to reclaim the city for old and new Londoners?

 

Join Owen Jones, author of Chavs, journalist Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi, New Humanist editor Daniel Trilling, currently writing a book about refugees in Europeand chair, journalist Rachel Shabi.

#FoylesFive: Celebrating Beer
23/07/2017

Earlier this year, Belgian beer culture finally officially took its rightful place on the World's Intangible Cultural Heritage list, where it now sits in good company with the likes of the French gastronomic meal, Cuban rumba and Spanish flamenco. To celebrate, here is a far from exhaustive selection of some of the beer literature that can help you better appreciate the delicate arts of brewing and drinking beer.
