Shoreditch is part of the London borough of Hackney, a district marked by fashion, literature and artistic history. The origin of the name “Shoreditch” has been debated upon by locals, but each theory presents an amusing story, most of which are still commemorated today. The Haggerston Branch Library is home to a painting of Jane Shore, mistress of Edward IV, who was allegedly ditched in the area.
Historical performances, musical and theatrical, were witnessed in prominent theatres such as the National Standard Theatre, the London Music Hall and Royal Cambridge Music Hall. The Curtain Theatre also featured plays written and directed by a certain someone by the name of William Shakespeare. Other prominent residents from Shoreditch are singer Matt Monro and model Peaches Geldof.
Shoreditch Park is a favourite family destination for activities, with playgrounds, sports facilities and London’s only outdoor volleyball court. The park also features an amphitheatre for theatre and cinema screenings.
Live music and art events are regularly available in various establishments if you know where to look. Catch 22 is a stable for musical performances by local bands. Fox is popular among the yuppie crowd for afternoon drinks. Water Poet lets you sit in comfortable couches while having tea or coffee.
Shoreditch is a magnet for artists and musicians, but a few years ago, the stretch of Old Street was home to web technology companies who took advantage of the “dot-com” boom, thereby earning the term “Silicon Roundabout” as mentioned in a speech by Prime Minister David Cameron in 2010.
Shoreditch merges the elements of the historical past and the prospects of future advancements in technology. The district thrives through the developments and updates to infrastructure, as well as the positive disposition exhibited by its residents.
