Simon Inglis is an author and historian best known for his work on football grounds and other sports venues. He is currently editor of the English Heritage Played in Britain series which documents the history of UK sport and sporting venues.
Simon will give a lively, illustrated presentation of the process of researching and gathering information for latest book in the series – Played in London (due out later this year): learning to navigate the Catford gyratory system, traipsing around graveyards and discovering the delights of Zone 6, in the tireless pursuit of uncovering hidden gems of London’s sporting heritage.
The talk is supported by The Building Centre as part of the London Festival of Architecture under the ‘Playful City’ theme.
