Latest Episode - Christmas Special
With the last episode of the series, it’s time to get Christmassy! We head down to the Hackney Empire to hear about their Christmas pantomime, ‘Mother Goose’, and we take a look into the creation of Immediate Theatres most recent touring production ‘Pressure drop’. Feature maker Vicki goes to visit Shoreditch Trust and Lime Tree Court to explore the reminiscence workshops that have been taking place to help young stroke survivors. And last but not least, you’ll get to hear Theatre Exchange’s Christmas production ‘Beauty and the Beastlies’
Presenters: Sue Elliott-Nicholls and Dahlia Douglas

Listen to our Shorts episodes from December!
Yohan L takes us out of Hackney and down to Kath’s Place in Deptford, where We Care Foodbank have been having trouble with social media trolls. This attack, along with the wave of gentrification and the cost of living crisis are taking their toll. We hear from the volunteers who are helping to support and feed the local community.
Celia Burgess-Macey and Wendy Knight from the Hackney HOWLers talk about creating the book Write Women into History, the Women’s Liberation Movement and Feminism.
