Take a walk back through time with East London’s newest grime crew, with a lyrical tour of Roman Road and its historical past. From the well-known Roman Road arches to an ancient Roman grave, the suffragettes, jellied eels, pie and mash, and lesser-known stories of a proper cockney market-barrow-maker and an infamous grime hangout!
‘Grime Travel’ was written by Fin Kennedy and co-created with and performed by students at Mulberry UTC in Bow.
This project was a collaboration between Applied Stories, Mulberry UTC, and Queen Mary University of London’s School of Geography and commissioned by Roman Road Trust.
