We are hosting Heritage Workshops in Hackney throughout May and June to complete our installation for St Katharine Cree.
We have been working on researching the Throckmorton family and their links with the events that led to Lady Jane Grey’s execution. The life of the martyr Anne Askew and the inner life of Lady Jane Grey as she was cruelly manipulated for political gain and greed.

There are still opportunities to join the research teams as we have an event at Sutton House on 8 September 2017 and our flagship event at The Tower of London 12 February 2018 and return research trips to Hampton Court and the Tower of London.
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.
If you were unable to attend and want more information email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us below.
On 10 August at 6pm at St Mary’s Stoke Newington, N16 we are holding the launch of our new Heritage Lottery funded project WOEFUL PUPPET.
This 18 month project will be looking at the political climate and events that led to the arrest and execution of Lady Jane Grey.
The commemorative booklet BRUSSELS AT DAWN is now available as a PDF
This FREE event was part of the Heritage Lottery Funded project BRUSSELS AT DAWN and took place at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green.
Our young researchers devised an installation of puppet show, exhibits and workshops for young children. We told the story of the WW1 heroine EDITH CAVELL who was a nurse in Belgium when it was invaded and was shot as a traitor on October 12 1915. This is her story from the point of view of her faithful dog, Jack. The puppet show lasts 20-25 mins and was followed by puppet making and heritage workshops.
