As part of a week of training and workshops we are offering a FREE Archives Training session at Hackney Archives Dalston Lane, London E8 3BQ (just above CLR James Library by Dalston Junction Station) on Thursday 25 April 6pm – 730pm.
The head archivist Elizabeth Green will be showing us how archives and primary sources can bring history alive and we will be looking at documents relevant to our research into Mary Wollstonecraft and our Heritage project
BLUE CIRCLE OF DISSENT
a Marriage Settlement from mid 1700s (a shocking document to the modern eye), minutes from the Unitarian Church where Mary Wollstonecraft was a parishioner, local maps and more.
This training deepens understanding of how lives were led and sometimes leads to new discoveries. (e.g previously we have discovered household accounts which told us what was eaten “Upstairs” by the “master” and what was eaten “Downstairs” by the servants).
Places are very limited due to the nature of the session so please email us at email@example.com or complete the form below to book a place

After the break we will be given a dramatised presentation using Lady Jane Grey’s own words by Sarah J Warren.
The Digital Output Team have produced two short films for our installations and they can also be downloaded.

First showings at St Katharine Cree WOEFUL PUPPET installation.

Mary I The Roman Catholic Nicene Creed
Excerpts will also be included along with interviews with experts, still and moving images and a community scripted voiceover in our Documentary.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
Unity Arts successful bid for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to deliver an 18 month project about Lady Jane Grey which will culminate in an exhibition at The Tower of London.
A launch will be held in Hackney in August. Watch this space for details!!!
