From Edgy Youth to All Grown Up

Over the past 100 years, King’s Cross and the surrounding area has changed from a flourishing  industrial heartland, through decline and dereliction to reinvention as a high end place to live, work and socialise. While many former residents have left as a result of the ongoing transformation, others remain in the area’s established housing estates. The changes that have taken place have created new opportunities, but are these opportunities open to everyone?

The exhibition will be held at:

Pancras Square Library, 5 Pancras Rd, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AG

Dates and times:

Wednesday 14th November to Tuesday 27th November 2018. Monday to Saturday, 8am – 8pm and Sunday 11am – 5pm.

Programme of activities:

We are hosting a series of activities to compliment our final exhibition.
