Come and meet Sir Trevor Brooking who will sign copies of Andy Hooper and Lee Clayton’s Farewell to Upton Park: The Official Celebration of West Ham United’s home 1904-2016. Pre-order your copy now for £20 (usual price £25).
The gentle author of the Spitalfields Life blog writes: “The departure of West Ham football team from the Boleyn Ground in Upton Park after more than a century, prior to a move to the
Olympic Stadium in Stratford, is an event of such momentous import that contributing photographer Colin O’Brien could not resist going down after the final game to capture the drama
outside the pitch while I interviewed a fan to get a personal testimony of this historic watershed.”
