The Huguenots of Spitalfields is a charity formed in 2013 to highlight the contribution the Huguenots (French Protestants) have made to this country.

The charity has staged four festivals attracting over 30,000 participants, runs a programme of walks and talks and runs a primary school initiative to talk about refugees, how silk is made, the character of the Huguenots and their enormous legacy. Based in Spitalfields, the charity’s work focuses on where the Huguenots settled including Greenwich and Soho, as well as Canterbury and Norwich.
Current partners for the programme include: V&A, Christ Church Spitalfields, City of London Corporation, Kings College London and Spitalfields Trust.
