David Carter runs a venue in nearby Stepney Green that hosts ‘Bedtime Stories’ events and also doubles up as a very very small hotel (just two rooms). It’s a showerless, gothic-styled house, largely used for fashion shoots by the likes of German Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, located next to a retail park featuring Halfords and Currys.
The bedtime stories are wonderfully flamboyant and dramatic; the events are open to anyone, and involve Carter’s special guests regaling attendees with tall tales. Pyjamas are obligatory.
