Along with some facets of Lady Jane Grey’s story we have interpretations and reactions from a wide spectrum of contributors via prose, poetry, images and artwork.
With support from the Unity Arts Heritage Team via workshops and meetings participants were encouraged to write to deadline, source images and think about the overall look of the booklet.
This was also an opportunity for participants to manage an activity and heritage output. Lewis J Phillips took the role as Editor and Michael Cheetham as Cover and Booklet Designer and the Costumes are Designed by Isabel Walters.
We hope you enjoy reading this unique heritage output.
There also are plenty of interesting Lady Jane Grey research resources created by our participants and experts Lady Jane Grey Resources

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.
We have been conducting practical Heritage Skills workshops, getting Archive and Research training and going on field trips to museums and galleries. And READING and READING.
The long process of sifting and collating begins early and here is a video made by our Digital Output Team of one of the steps in our research trail into the life of Lady Jane Grey.
With the St Katharine Cree installation coming up in June and work started on Sutton House installation we covered the Throckmortons and Anne Askew a lot in this session at Diorama Studios during our latest set of workshops and installation creating.
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.
the carving has now arrived from Belgium, Here is a quote from Phil.
Phil Manning, a churchwarden at St Katharine Cree, said: “This is an amazing time for this carving to be coming back to the church … The building is on the heritage at risk register and there are significant plans for its restoration over the next few years. The return of a fine piece of carving which belongs on an existing monument of a historically important figure is really quite something. “It is not only a beautiful object but a gateway to the understanding and interpretation of our heritage.”
Our work continues in preparation for our installation at St Katharine Cree 19 – 30 June 2017.
