IROKO Theatre Company, which is based in Stratford, is looking for people to share their stories of life in the Royal Docks area.

The project is funded by the Royal Docks Trust and will involve pupils from Winsor Primary and Ellen Wilkinson Primary.

The stories collected will be used to devise an inter-generational musical theatre pageant and an accompanying exhibition.

It is hoped they will tour a number of Newham venues.
