Memory & 7/7 at Tavistock Square

Join us for a panel discussion on the plans to memorialise 7/7 at Tavistock Square and the possible consequences of these plans for the square’s other memorial traces and markers. The panel brings together some of those who were first on the scene and later investigated the bombing with those responsible for the recent memorial campaign and a number of academics working in the field of memory studies.

Philip Nelson: Chair of the 7/7 Tavistock Square Memorial Trust
