Catford Tales was an oral history project using verbatim testimony from Catford’s residents devised, produced and performed by Lewisham Youth Theatre. It was performed promenade through Catford town centre in July 2015. The project began as Lewisham Youth Theatre’s Senior group project for participants aged 14-21, and engaged members in researching local history, interviewing local people and devising the play. As part of our research for Catford Tales we collected recordings of Catford stories.
