Planning Yesterday

A free illustrated talk by Lester Hillman

This year is the centenary of the Royal Town Planning Institute and of UCL’s planning school in Bloomsbury. Lester Hillman, a planner, will explore Camden’s fascinating heritage of people, places and institutions. The site of the Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre itself plays a colourful part in the story.
