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 email@example.com or contact us below.

An interview about the Edith Cavell window at St Olave’s, Hart Street, London and Phil Manning’s thoughts on the life of Edith Cavell.
Edith Cavell Window
As part of the installation at St Mary’s there will be a short talk within the exhibition using the propaganda references to illustrate how Edith Cavell’s execution was used as a propaganda tool.
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.
We attended the wreath laying ceremony at Trafalgar Square. Some of our researchers dressed in WW1 nurses’ uniforms each laid a single white rose at the statue. Taking these Live Exhibits outside meant that many of the public who did not know what was going on could understand why so many had gathered to commemorate Edith Cavell.
Some attended the Cavell Nurses’ Trust event in St Martin’s Hall and we also presented the puppet show BRUSSELS AT DAWN – Jack’s Story and gave away many, many copies of our booklets.
It was a very moving day and we felt we did Edith Cavell’s memory proud.
A team visited Diana Souhami in her home this month. She kindly gave us a succession of interviews and allowed us to film and photograph the process. We will be posting the full interview here on the website.
