Catford, 19681968 Outburst Theatre Leaflet
Community Heritage Project – London – 2018

Partnered with St Laurence Church & Community Centre (Catford) and Blackheath’s Age Exchange, Outburst Theatre brought together 35 children in Years 5 & 6 from 12 different Lewisham schools and dozens of senior residents who shared their memories of life in Lewisham and Catford in 1968. The children then used these stories to create an immersive, promenade performance, in the vast and unique space of St Laurence Community Centre.

This project gave free drama training and free research training to all participating children. A documentary was made of the whole process, which will be screened at St Laurence Community Centre at the end of February, 2019.

Audio recordings were made of the children interviewing senior residents and 20+ hours of recordings have been donated to the Lewisham Archive for future research on local life in the 1960s.

This project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Outburst Theatre, St Laurence Church and Lewisham Arts Council Fund.
