As we approach the 750th anniversary of the Hamelin fable, Camden Accredited Guide, Lester Hillman leads an exploration of this area rich in historic links. These include sculpture, heraldry, poetry and food plus rodents and royalty, military and migration, institutions and local place names. Where do Harry Potter, Lewis Carroll, the Cold War and Eurostars fit in? It is a story about outsourcing public health management and Kings Cross post-Covid has much to tell.
