Visit our new Market Tales website:

 Signal Film and Media is delighted to announce the launch of its exciting new Heritage Lottery -Funded project. 

The team and specialist tutors will work with volunteers, residents and stall holders to uncover and explore the role of Barrow’s Market in the town and to build up an in-depth picture of the market’s little known history.

Through an exciting programme of research and creative activities participants will record the scents, sounds and stories of the market and gain a deeper understanding of what it means to the community as a site of grassroots enterprise, a social hotspot and a melting pot of people of all ages and cultures.

The project will run from October 2017 to April 2018. This will be an opportunity for people to get involved in the pre-christmas programme of archive research sessions, oral history training, storytelling and sound workshops, planned visits to other North Western Markets and the opening of a temporary market stall in Barrow Market.
