We took a detour across London to the iconic E.Pellicci café for our latest photo instalment. Steeped in East End tradition this thumping heart of Bethnal Green road has seen it all from the famous to the infamous, the great and the good and the not so good - yet it remains true to it's roots, never changing, always authentic. We were inspired by British café heritage culture and the abiding spirit of egalitarianism that characterise these wonderful places, level playing fields where friendship and community is the common tongue and where if you look closely enough you'll spot a local hero.
We were joined on the day by a stellar cast and crew from the boxing and entertainment world - all with a touch of the local hero about them, and all with a great story to tell, see our spotlight interviews to come.
