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 email@example.com
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 spent the last couple of months on research trips in and outside of London.
We were lucky to visit Bradgate House and Park (home to the Grey family) whilst the 3D model of the original house was on display.
We have visited Basing House and Park for a Tudor Day tour and seen the fully restored Tudor barn (including canon ball damage)
We have also had our bespoke tour and talk at St Katharine Cree where we are presenting a two week heritage installation in June 2017.
Other visits include The National Portrait Gallery, The National Gallery and Archive training at the London Metropolitan Archives.
We have Sutton House, The London Museum and Hampton Court planned. If you want to join our research team please fill in comments below and we will send you an information pack.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us below.
