Whitechapel stories

Whitechapel stories


Friday 25 November | 19.00–22.00

In London mythology nothing compares to Whitechapel, the inner fulcrum of London’s East End with a vivid social history characterised by movement, migration and change. This event seeks to catalogue the area’s uniquely diverse set of residents with an evening of oral history, storytelling and discussion. Listen to true and personal stories as residents consider their own personal hopes and fears as well as their hopes and fears for the local area. These storytellers are performing for the first time after participating in a workshop with Spark London, in which they learn to turn their personal experiences into tales to tell.

Storytelling workshop

This event is preceded by a storytelling workshop hosted by the Survey of London and run by Spark London on 15 November. Come along and learn how to turn your life’s events into stories to tell.

There are only two conditions to taking part, that your stories will be true, and that they will, in some way, involve your life and experience in Whitechapel. Book here and uncover your storytelling self.
