Love Lane Lives

The history of sugar in Liverpool and the effects of the closure of the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery, Love Lane

The Girls & Boys from the Whitestuff

The Blue Turban Ladies of the Tate closure protests

"The remarkable thing about this project was not just sugar, an extraordinary but much taken for granted commodity but the extraordinary lives of ordinary refinery workers... This project has lots of historical curiosity value but it has wider ramifications for ongoing debates on the politics of food and globalization. It's also a vital record of the people who struggled against a major multinational to protect not just their own livelihoods but a whole community."

From Ron Noon Project Coordinator of LOVE LANE LIVES

Today @ FACT Liverpool our film is being shown @ 1500hrs! It’s part of the FOOD FOR REAL FESTIVAL LIVERPOOL 19-22 MARCH 2015. Where is my film maker Leon Seth? The film resonates as ever and Love Lane Lives live on, albeit so many of the wonderful characters in our documentary have now in the words of a great Tates transport driver “gone on to greener pastures”!
