For more than a century, hopping was the main event in the East End calendar, with over 200,000 East Enders descending on Kent looking for casual work picking hops. Thoughtful, moving and beautifully rendered, Hopping captures the essence of ordinary family lives often obscured from history during an extraordinary period in London’s past. Charting the shift of the East End from poverty, to the steel towers of today’s Canary Wharf, Hopping stands as testament to the true East Ender disposition – an agility of spirit to endure your lot and get by.
