Millwall’s changing communities

Volunteers wanted for oral history project

Millwall’s changing communities: Memories of football and neighbourhood in South London


The aim of this 2-year, Lottery-funded project, led by Bede House in collaboration with Millwall for All, is to uncover and record the memories and experiences of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Millwall fans in South London over a 50-year period, approximately from the mid-1960s to the present day. While rarely recognised, BAME fans are part of the history of Millwall, just as Millwall is part of the cultural heritage of a rapidly changing, increasingly diverse part of London. It is this relationship between fan culture, football club and neighbourhood that this project wants to explore.

In order to do this, a total of 30 life story interviews with BAME Millwall fans, as well as 15 contextual interviews, will be carried out over the summer and autumn 2017.

Role of volunteers

The project looks to recruit 12 volunteers to carry out a total of 30 life story interviews in the period June-August 2017, working together with the project coordinator. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, they should ideally have an interest in heritage and community relations in South London, and they will need to be available for the training workshops.

  • One-day training workshops in oral history methods will be provided by experienced oral historian on 11th and 21st May
  • Reflection event in November 2017, in order to discuss findings from the interviews and the future of the project
  • Transport expenses for workshops and interviews are covered by the project
  • Free ticket for Millwall home game

Do you want to be involved?

If you are interested in volunteering, and if you have got questions about the project, please do contact project coordinator Ole Jensen,
