Welcome to Candle Street
Pupils took to the airwaves to unveil their three part mini radio series called ‘Round About Candle Street’, inspired by Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood.
They have been working with Ministry of Stories , a local writing and mentoring centre in east London, on developing their ideas and writing the script as part of a BBC History project set up to mark the 65th anniversary of Dylan Thomas’ famous radio play.
Pupils were invited to talk about their play and the project with presenter Robert Elms on his BBC London radio show. The script is based on the sights, sounds and people of Bethnal Green and Mile End. ‘Round About Candle Street’ can be heard on: https://www.ministryofstories.org/round-about-candle-street
