An Oral History of Play and Games

An intergenerational project formed to explore how children's play has changed in Kensington & Chelsea over the years.

These podcasts use interviews undertaken by children from Servite and Colville Primary Schools to show how play and games have changed over the years both by those who grew up in the area and those who moved to it from other places both home and abroad. 

They explore aspects of play for pre-teen children including street play, playgrounds, singing games and rhymes and board games as well as what it was like to grow up in London in the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s.
