Things to do in a blackout

Radio drama

During WW2 crime rose by a reported 57%. Fraud, gang culture, looting, and robbery impacted on people’s everyday life. Along with poverty, hunger, illness, and exceptional pressure – what was home really like?

Our pre-lockdown project has been reworked as a digital art piece depicting a street during the Blitz. Every house has a story, every house contains an episode. Help us make it.
