Leicester Sound Postcards - Telling Stories Using Sound Leicester Stories

    • Society & Culture

At the November Saturday Heritage Fair, Dimple Patel from Luminous Productions shared her experience creating the Leicester Sound Postcards. Using sounds and testimony, Parveenben’s Shop is the “story of one woman’s love for the craft of sewing, and the empowerment this skill brought her and her mother.” Dimple explained how telling these stories of businesses that went from tiny living rooms in terraced houses, into a thriving South Asian clothing business in Highfields, is an inspiring account of people’s experience arriving and becoming part of the communities of Leicester.
