Tales from the Two Puddings

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 30th Jan 2013

In the four decades that the Johnson family ran the Two Puddings in Stratford, it became one of London's busiest and most fashionable pubs.

A magnet for a colourful cast of disparate characters, including renowned actors, writers, singers, musicians, champion boxers, infamous gangsters, television personalities, and World Cup-winning footballers.

Join landlord and author of Tales from the Two Puddings Eddie Johnson, in conversation with broadcaster Robert Elms to look back upon a lost world of East End eccentrics, local villainy and punch-ups and discuss his recent book.

Cost: £7
