Heritage Workshops May and June

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.

If you wish to learn more about the project or receive a workshop application pack and be part of the installation at St Katharine Cree please contact us here or at unityarts@hotmail.co.uk

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.

 

Lady Jane Grey Documentary

Filming has started on the Heritage Lottery Funded Documentary and Digital Outputs for WOEFUL PUPPET.

We have had delivery of Heritage Film Workshops from Meddle Films (with more to come in May) script meetings and Practice Sessions.

To be able to deliver a high standard across all our outputs (3 Exhibitions, Documentary, Education Packs, Colour Booklet, Specialist Speakers and Expert Interviews) we are having to conduct very deep research and also have a lot of practice and expert practical support as well as the use of found and created images.

Brussels at Dawn – Jack’s Story

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.
