It’s gritty, creative, messy, genuine, has soul, character and characters, fearless, a risk taker or breaker, has an attitude. That’s the East End and that’s Shoreditch for you. During the day it is a normal, habitable, busy area. On certain nights like The First Thursday it is a vibrant monster. You either get it or you don’t. But no-one gives a damn if you do for all are doing their own thing and even better when it is a free. It’s there for you to take from it what you will. Me, it’s my stomping ground and I enjoy it most of the time.
If you are game and ready to encounter the unexpected then you could be in for a treat. Just hang loose, let your mind go and check out the area.
