About the event

During the 1960s the name Dyke and Dryden was unknown. By the 1970s they were one of the most famous names in the Tottenham area, opening a variety of shops, hairdressers and supplying Black women with the essential hair products that they needed.

This is just one of the stories that this infamous road in north London tells.

This bustling street has a rich and diverse history which is often overlooked. The street has been home to a vibrant African and Caribbean community for decades and has played an important role in the development of Black British culture in the area.

Come and hear Avril Nanton tell the street’s story.

This is a 2 hour walk that starts at Costa Coffee, south Tottenham and finishes at La Rose Lane (formerly Black Boy Lane).
