Wilton’s Music Hall

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is the first video I have ever directed, on the Wilton’s Music Hall in Tower Hamlets – a truly incredible place with a past punctuated with significant historical events. It was here that Champagne Charlie grew to fame, where the London Dockers congregated during the Docker’s Strike, and where East End rebels sought refuge during the Battle of Cable Street. And it’s still going – wait until the end of the film for recent footage of a Magic Numbers gig there.

Huge thanks to Felix Clay for shooting the whole thing, and to Christian Bennett for cutting it.
