Push Up Brentford!

An Oral History of Brentford Football Club

Push Up Brentford! is a project set up and run by educational charity digital:works.

The project focused on an oral history of Brentford Football Club at a time when it was about to move from its Griffin Park ground, home to the club since 1904.

Working with historians, local archives and digital-works staff, this project trained volunteers in research skills, oral history interviewing and recording skills.

The project recorded 23 in-depth oral history interviews with fans, former players and staff of the club.

These full interviews are being given to the local archives, Brentford History Group and Bishopsgate Institute.

The interviews have been edited to make a documentary film and a series of podcasts.

The project website houses all of the full interviews, the podcasts, the film and covers the progress of the project.

We are grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for financially supporting this project.
