Parched City: Drinking From London's Rivers

  • 22 April 2015 7-8pm

Join Emma Jones, author of Parched City for a visual talk about London’s drinking water history. From the mid-18th century when drinking Thames water was considered healthful to 1827, when Londoners were told that the Thames was ‘destructive to health'. Then fast-forward to the 21st century when London’s tap water is proclaimed to be ‘world class’; a claim that many campaigners in the 1980s would have rejected.
