Imperial Wharf is to host an illustrated History of Fulham by The Fulham Society as part of the annual Celebrating Fulham festivities.
St George, London's leading mixed-use developer, is delighted to be able to provide this free event in partnership with The Fulham Society on Thursday 2 June 2009. Presented by renowned local historian Keith Whitehouse, the Fulham Society is set to provide an intriguing insight into the history of Fulham, encapsulating the tale of Nell Gwynne, the fashionable area of the New Kings Road, via Sands End to the River Thames at Imperial Wharf.
Ross Faragher, Managing Director, St George Central London, commented: "We are delighted to host The History of Fulham as part of Celebrating Fulham in partnership with the Fulham Society, bringing together the very best from across the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, set to provide a fascinating insight to the history of the local area and Imperial Wharf."
Niel Redpath of The Fulham Society, the local amenity society, commented; "The Fulham Society is delighted to be working with St George to promote this event. The amenity society is dedicated to preserving the best of Fulham, which has a fascinating history, and until the mid-nineteenth century was mostly market gardens, growing produce for London." Niel Redpath continued to say; "We have been involved with Imperial Wharf since its earliest stages and are particularly pleased with the existing and planned open spaces."
Celebrating Fulham is a week long programme of cultural events, running from 27 June to 5 July, run by the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham in conjunction with The Fulham Society. The History of Fulham is to be held at The Wharf Rooms, adjacent to Jury's Inn Chelsea Hotel at Imperial Wharf.
