Triggering audio via GPS-location, Hackney Hear provides an innovative way to explore and rediscover London Fields through the stories of residents, local writers and musicians.


Start anywhere in London Fields or Broadway Market, E8. Slip your phone into your pocket and start walking, then stand still to hear more of each story or move on to hear to something new.
