Read commissioned creative writing. Listen to the voice of deceased local shoemaker William Falkner (the third). Hear what young museum curators say about the items in Falkner’s workshop and look at commissioned photographs of the Falkner Boot and Shoe exhibit. Listen to generations of writers speaking to each other a radio programme about the Sole2Soul project.

The project was funded by Arts Council England and commissioned by Leicestershire County Council.
