Rosie Brooks exhibition at Borough Market

Borough Market will be hosting prominent local artist Rosie Brooks for five days this August, putting on show 128 touching artworks created in the wake of the London Bridge terror attack.

Held in the Market Hall, the exhibition features specially-created illustrations of each market trader and many of the restaurants that were affected by the attack on 3 June.

Rosie will also be sharing her creative skills with visitors to the market, inviting budding artists to join her free drawing classes from 12pm to 2pm on Wednesday 23 to Friday 25th August.

Rosie said "I've been a resident of Borough for many years. Living just by Southwark Cathedral meant I was affected by the cordon that was set up after the terror attack. It was something that touched so many of us, I wanted to bring some cheer and joy to the local community. I thought the best way for me to show my support was through my illustrations, as part of the #LoveBorough campaign.

"At the start, I had an overwhelmingly positive response on social media. People really enjoyed seeing illustrations of the Borough Market traders doing what they love most, from bread making to selling oysters. Considering what they have been through, I decided that each trader deserved their own, bespoke illustration.

"From my years living here, I can say without a doubt that Borough is one of the most amazing communities to be a part of. I'm grateful that I'm able to share my passion for art, and give back to the market in the best way I can."
