Sugar & Spice was an intergenerational project celebrating the people, the places, and the spaces which helped shape the High Street as we know it today. Using oral histories & research groups joined together to celebrate the stories of their local community.
Children animated heritage stories using shadow puppetry, drama, creative writing, collage and even tried a “trashion” show!
The project culminated with a performance, touring exhibition, and a poetry night co-created with local people between 7-70 in age.
