Tower Hamlets Fair

We live in the London borough of Tower Hamlets in the area of Mile End. Last Saturday we spent an hour at the Tower Hamlets Community Fair in Mile End Park, ten minutes' walk from our flat at Queen Mary College. The fair was, for the most part, a Muslim event, which I hadn't expected. We felt welcome enough, but Joey was outraged when Christine had to stand in a women-only line to buy food. I was just bemused that she was willing to do it.
