The Rising Sun

Loading voices, this may take a minute.

This digital sound experience presents the voices of nearly 100 people living and working in the outer East London borough of Havering.

The stories were gathered and presented as part of a physical sound and light installation in July 2022, located in Romford Market.

This online archive offers a snapshot of this experience, charting the histories, memories, and futures of the people of this changing borough.

The audio contains authentic language and deals with everyday themes of life, death, and health conditions.
