Venue: Bedford Square
The essence of common land lies in the rights to use it. As a working landscape it once formed the most accessible open space in London – the site for traditional games, celebrations and informal recreation. A space for grazing, drying, making out. The commons deceased through enclosures and privatisation. It is about time to gather for its farewell around the railings of Bedford Square.
