LT TV is your portal to Living Together and Becontree. Living Together TV. Events, walks, conversations, readings – everything that we can’t do in physical space together will be broadcast via this stream. It is a screening room, a gallery, a direct line to Becontree and a way to feel close when we are remote.
A new screensaver will be uploaded each month over 2021 featuring the estate and an object from The Becontree Collection.

BANJO ON THE BANJO was a musical performance located in various banjos across the Becontree Estate culminating in Parsloes Park in August 2019 as part of Living Together. Twenty-one residents of Becontree learned to play the banjo with musician and teacher Ed Hicks and were then joined by a group of more experienced players to perform a new piece of music that responded to the banjos of Becontree and the estate itself. This new film shares the process and performance.
