Court Assistant Nick Mockett alerted us via an article in the Docklands and East London Advertiser to an exhibition called Lightboxes & Lettering running from  Friday, January 17, 2020 to Sunday, March 29, 2020 at  Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ. The opening times are: Tue-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat & Sun 10am-5pm.

As well as all sorts of ephemera and printing presses to view there will be oral histories and an events programme tpo accompany the exhibition.  Members from the Printing sector will be fascinated but anyone who loves history and the East End will find something of interest.
