Stall Stories: A History of London Street Markets

Stall StoriesWe are halfway through our Stall Stories Project. Children from two London Primary Schools, Colville and Stockwell, have made short documentaries exploring the history of their local street markets as told by stall holders and locals.

Both films were premiered in school assemblies with the young film makers showing their films at their own school followed by a Q&A. Then children from each school took their film back to their local market, setting up their very own pop-up cinema on a traditional market stall amidst the hustle and bustle to show the film to shoppers and stall holders with the young film makers on hand to answer questions. Each film has been really well received by everyone who has seen it.

See these wonderful films on Brixton Market and Portobello Road Market online now on the project website..
