From Docks to Desktops seeks more volunteers


Over the last year, Bubble has interviewed more than 45 people from Bermondsey, Rotherhithe and Deptford as part our 'From Docks to Desktops' project.

Supported by funding from the Heritage Lottery and Grants for the Arts, D2D (as we affectionately call it) aims to explore the history of Work in our local area and how it’s changed since the time of Stevedores, Dockers and Peak Freans.
Our cast of about 30 people aged 9-80yrs are now working with a script, created entirely from these interviews.  Rehearsals start again next week and keep your eye out for announcements about performances in November!

We’ve been delighted with the response to our call out for people willing to share their stories, BUT Bubble is still in need of more volunteers to help transcribe the interviews and take these stories back out in to the local community.

Can you help us? 
Whether it’s offering a few hours to transcribe an interview or giving time to support taking our road show out and about, if you’d like to help, we would love to hear from you.
Please contact Claire if you would like to help or to have a chat about the project:
0207 2374434 or email
