Whitechapel Noise

A concert celebrating London's Yiddish culture before WW1, with author Vivi Lachs

Thurs 4 October, 7.30pm


An evening of charismatic histories and song celebrating London’s Yiddish popular culture before WW1. Feisty, spicy and moving music-hall songs and punchy, political ballads and union hymns give a fascinating window into a working-class immigrant community fighting for better working conditions, arguing gender politics, debating religious change and becoming English.

Vivi Lachs, author of Whitechapel Noise tells stories of the old East End illustrated by bands Klezmer Klub, Katsha’nes and the Great Yiddish Parade.

No Yiddish knowledge needed!
