Somers Town Art Opening

SpH4b_1.jpgI’m the biggest fan of local photographer Alastair Fyfe, and I’m excited that he’s created spectacular murals for the newly developed Basil Jellicoe Hall in Somers Town.

Somers Town is a little-known area near Euston Station that has been a colourful and multicultural part of London since its origins as a Victorian slum.

The work illustrates the life and work of Father Basil Jellicoe, the visionary who pioneered the rebuilding of Somers Town—from demolishing the slum to rebuilding a community. Today Basil Jellicoe Hall, under the wing of SPH, is at the heart of the area’s move into the future. The four groups featured in the photoillustratons range from the scouts to Bengali Somerstown Futures.

The pieces are being unveiled tomorrow (Friday 23rd September 2005) from 16.30�18.30 at Basil Jellicoe Hall, Drummond Crescent NW1 (off Eversholt Street, near Euston Station).
