350th Anniversary of the Great Fire of London. An art installation by the Californian artist David Best – a 120-metre long, scaled wooden replica of the capital’s 17th century skyline set alight on the evening of Sunday, September 4. Watch the live-stream of the flaming spectacle here.

“The people displaced 350 years ago are being displaced now. The economy is doing a topsy turvy thing on the people of London. The lower classes are being pushed out not by a fire, but by an economic fire”

David Best
