Pupils from St George the Martyr Primary School interviewing a trader on Leather Lane market.

After working with the young  children, training them in research, filmmaking, interview techniques and oral history. Digital:works spent time with them out on the market recording the fascinating history of this street market, interviewing the traders and shoppers, and capturing a vivid snapshot of the market as it is today.

The resulting film is part of The Stall Stories project, conceived, coordinated and implemented by digital:works and funded by Heritage Lottery Fund.

Sue Bowers, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund London, told us how: “This project illustrates how small businesspeople and market traders have been the lifeblood of local areas, reflecting the cultural character and economic conditions in individual neighbourhoods.”
