Welcome to Canning Town Ballroom, Anchor House, brought to life here by the stories of those who frequented it back in the day and from those who live there now. Once a Seaman's Rest, it is now a residential and life-skills support centre for single homeless adults.  In helping these stories come to life, the Caritas Anchor House residents are learning an exciting and practical array of new skills along with visiting heritage sites across the London's East End

Residents' videos
Below is a selection of video works that were produced at the 'Dancing 'Round Canning Town' skills-building workshops at Anchor House. The 
group learnt a range of video storytelling and filming techniques and were set the task of producing their own video experiments in storytelling.
