We’ve got new ways to keep you safe this winter and our updated COVID entry measures apply to this event. Please familiarise yourself with our Keeping You Safe page and ensure that you and all members of your party comply with entry requirements in order to attend this event.

Join us for the launch of London Yiddishtown; a collection of brilliant and funny stories and sketches of the Jewish East End, collected and translated from the Yiddish by historian and performer, Vivi Lachs. 

Discover impassioned stories of anti-fascist activism, ideologies and cafes; East-End film extras and family squabbles; satire that still bites and reveals century-old synagogue politics. Prepare to be intrigued, entertained and moved by a conversation between Vivi Lachs and broadcaster and oral historian, Alan Dein (Radio 4’s Don’t Log Off) which will be punctuated by readings from the book and tracks from some of their favourite musicians from London Yiddishtown.
