Here’s ‘When The Lion Roars’ in memory of one of London’s finest social activists, Frederick Charrington. Some would say he was mad, others would claim he was a saint. Whichever way you look at it Charrington was certainly an interesting character and one passionate individual.
The family name can be found all over the East End of London but Frederick broke the family mould and in doing so cemented a place in London history. Play London song above, view video for story.
