Gathering Stories


Did you grow up in the 50s, 60s or 70s?

Half Moon Theatre is looking for members of the Tower Hamlets community who grew up in the 50s, 60s or 70s to talk to our Lunar Youth Theatre (you don’t have to have had lived in Tower Hamlets during this period). We are looking to collect stories about what life was like for young people during this time. These stories will inform a series of brand new performances created by our young people which you will be invited to watch this summer.

We would like to find out what sort of activities you took part in when you were a child, how your area has changed over the years, and any other stories you would like to share with us. We are looking for photographs from this time period to act as a stimulus for our young people so if you are able to bring any with you on the day that would be fantastic. Refreshments will be served on the day.

Date: Thursday 12 April
Time: 10.30am – 12.30pm
Venue: Half Moon Theatre, 43 White Horse Road, London, E1 0ND

If you are interested in talking with us please contact us on 020 7709 8901 or email

We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will be able to join us.
