Ongoing interviews, conversations and visits are taking place to build up an archive of Hackney Wick’s past and present including; photographs, memorabilia, portraits and text which will be incorporated into the Wick Curiosity Shop on the day of the festival.

A ‘Senior Citz of Trowbridge’ Mix CD will be produced for trading on the day of the festival, this will be a mix of songs that the elders of Hackney Wick associate with the local area, from party songs they would dance to down the club, old cockney songs that have been sung for generations to stars they would go and see sing at the Hackney Empire Theatre on Mare Street.
