We received funding in 2017 for a project exploring the history of the hall and our local area. Local writer and broadcaster Steve Martin carried out oral history interviews with local residents – these interviews have been lodged with Lambeth Archives and are available for everyone to access. Steve also ran archive discovery sessions for young people.

This exploration led onto a week of dance and drama workshops for young people in July led by Louisa McAlpine and Camilla de Quetteville. The young participants worked up a fantastic Music Hall Extravaganza, performed on 29 July 2017, which told the story of the hall and the many musicians and entertainers who have lived in our area since the late 1800s.
