A creative digital adventure that brings to life the history of Leytonstone High Road, through the eyes of young local residents.  Get to know this corner of the city better through a

walking AR app that includes dance, music and stories created and told by the people that live here.  


The app was created by students from Leytonstone’s very own Connaught School for Girls in collaboration with digital dance company Pell Ensemble and computing educator U Can Too.  Students co-created the performance, stories and music, and developed the app using Augmented Reality app Blippar; creating a way to see the high street in a new light. 


Come and experience the histories, old and new, that lie in the buildings, streets and people of Leytonstone

Proud to be a part of Leytonstone Arts Trail on the 6th of July and part of Leytonstone Loves Film which is produced by the Barbican in partnership with local residents and organisations and commissioned by London Borough of Culture.
The app was available to experience between June 2019-
June 2020.
