Victoria Park:

In the latter half of the 19th Century, Victoria Park became an essential amenity for the working classes of the East End. Victoria Park's reputation as the 'People's Park' grew as it became a center for political meetings and rallies and is still referred to by locals as the 'Peoples Park.'

Aside from being an oasis for Londoners to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life Victoria Park has become synonymous with its open-air music festivals such as Field Day and All Points East. Music events have played a pivitol role in making the park what it is today.

On April 1978, an estimated 100,000 people marched seven miles from Trafalgar to Victoria Park to show solidarity against the National Front and the rhetoric of public figures like Enoch Powell where Rock against Racism had organised a protest event featuring The Clash, X-Ray Spex, Tom Robinson Band, and Steel Pulse.
