WHAT WE DO AND PUBLISH
Can of Worms takes on projects which in general have the common good as a central purpose to the project.
In print, Can of Worms has won a variety of awards for its kids and cookery books: the Mission: Explore series of books have won the following: National Trust/Daily Telegraph Outdoor Book of the Year GEOvation Award, winner, was runner-up for the Society of Authors Education Writer of the Year. The series has also won accolades from Pink Stinks for its balanced portrayal of boys and girls from different backgrounds. The National Geographic reviews the series as “Cool, exciting and just plain fun!”
The Borough Market Cookbook was Sheila Dillon’s pick for the Radio 4 Food Programme’s Cookbook of the Year. The book is the result of a wonderful collaboration of devotees of the market celebrating food and cooking. 101 plus recipes cover canapes, starters, main courses and signature dishes sourced from the producers and traders who are relentlessly passionate about their livestock and livelihood and for whom provenance is paramount.
Can of Worms also publishes Roger Bachelor’s history of the yards The Pullens Story: 1879-Present Day and George Nicholson’s beautiful collection of photographs of makers from the Yards in the 1980s, Made in Southwark.
In 2016, Can of Worms produced its first stage play: Charlie Chaplin: Tonight at the Museum written by Gillian Plowman and directed by Pamela Howard, OBE and put on at The Cinema Museum (the former Lambeth Workhouse – home to Charlie in his early life).
This year, Can of Worms has embarked upon its first feature film project: REVolution, a feature based upon true events in 1958 Havana, Cuba.
