Along with some facets of Lady Jane Grey’s story we have interpretations and reactions from a wide spectrum of contributors via prose, poetry, images and artwork.
With support from the Unity Arts Heritage Team via workshops and meetings participants were encouraged to write to deadline, source images and think about the overall look of the booklet.
This was also an opportunity for participants to manage an activity and heritage output. Lewis J Phillips took the role as Editor and Michael Cheetham as Cover and Booklet Designer and the Costumes are Designed by Isabel Walters.
We hope you enjoy reading this unique heritage output.
There also are plenty of interesting Lady Jane Grey research resources created by our participants and experts Lady Jane Grey Resources
We held the launch of the Heritage Lottery funded WOEFUL PUPPET at St Mary’s Community Rooms in Hackney on 10 August. This project about the events that led to the execution of Lady Jane Grey attracted a lot of interest.
We were so pleased with the wonderfully diverse turnout (especially as its the holidays) and that so many people signed up for trips and training to gain the skills to install heritage exhibitions at St Katherine Kree, Sutton House and the Tower of London.
We will also be producing a documentary, sub-titled interviews with experts, colour booklet and online educational materials.
It was also a first outing as presenter for our volunteer Olivia who is hoping to learn heritage skills such as research and archive training and also installation skills such as how to be a Live Exhibit.
As previously we will be holding other outreach events throughout the project.

BRUSSELS AT DAWN is being hosted by St Mary’s Church, Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 9ES 2 – 12 November to coincide with Remembrance events.
The installation will be a selection of the pieces previously exhibited at St Martin In The Fields. It is fitting that the community bring their work back to St Mary’s in Hackney as for many of our group it is their local church.
Unity Arts successfully bid for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to support a project open to all who live in Hackney, Islington or Tower Hamlets who want to learn about the most democratic of art forms, Old Time Music Hall. It echoes all around us, Waterstone’s at Islington Green, Marie Lloyd’s house in Hackney, Wilton’s Hall in Poplar and there are huge audiences for variety leaning TV shows like Britain’s Got Talent.
The project will enable participants of all ages to discover their local history through research, museum visits and talks from local experts from January to June whilst learning new skills to produce an exhibition and performance at Hoxton Hall on 9 June 2012. www.hoxtonhall.co.uk
