Hackney has a rich/diverse shopping culture that features outdoor markets, indoor shopping centres and independent shopping streets full of quirky and traditional shops. Narrow Way in Hackney Central is the latter: Pearl Wise has interviewed six shop keepers and you can see and hear the result in an exhibition at the Hackney Museum.
Entry is free, check the website for opening times.
The EastCast team talk to local Hackney residents about what living in Hackney means to them, the history of the area and how it has changed. These interviews were recorded live from The Narrow Way in Hackney, in collaboration with The Decorators and Hackney Museum. All the music is also comprised of voices of Hackney with a diverse range of Hackney’s talent over the years.
