Notting Dale Walking Tour

Peoples Hall

England E1 6FQ, United Kingdom

Created By: Cecily Powell


The People’s Hall is the only significant building from the independent Republic of Frestonia that is still standing today. This red brick Victorian beauty was the focal point for the community of bohemians where the collective of 120 or so residents would meet to discuss the affairs of the Republic and host creative events from theatre to art shows.

The building was also a seminal location for trailblazing musicians in London with the likes of The Clash, Motörhead, Killing Joke and Girlschool all making use of the space.

Today, the spirit of the building is kept alive and is home to multiple studios for independent artists and businesses as well as housing the Frestonia Gallery’s exhibition space.
