Excerpts will also be included along with interviews with experts, still and moving images and a community scripted voiceover in our Documentary.

SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH

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.

Olivia and aud

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.
