Punjabi Lives


Crescent Community Radio is a registered charity broadcasting to the local community in Rochdale.

In 2021 we were awarded a grant by the Heritage Lottery Fund to record the experiences of the Punjabi Community in Greater Manchester.

The Project

The aim of the project was to record, share and preserve the stories of the community across three generations (including Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs). The result is an invaluable oral history collection which provides intimate portraits of community members, and preserves for future generations the history and culture of the Punjabi people.
