110 years ago, building of the first cottages in Finchley Garden Village began. And the village has just reached its 40th anniversary as a conservation area.
Resident Helen Allen, who is an artist and writer, will share her perspective on this unique area of architectural and historical interest and will examine the effects that the design of this community has had on its residents.
Helen will also show her short film about the early years, entitled “Village Life in London”. The film's narration is by the late Stephen Jack, a BBC broadcaster, West End actor, and one of the first Village residents.
