LIVE EVENTS Free via Eventbrite
22 June @ 7pm Sir Nicholas Throckmorton, The Puppet Master
29 June @ 7pm Lady Jane Grey, The Woeful Puppet
We have found several sources telling us that Lady Jane Grey recited Psalm 51 in her room at The Tower of London before she was executed. The whole team agreed it would be good to have a version on our website as well as include excerpts in the finished documentary.
Some of the Digital Output Team have kicked off the creation of the dramatized segments of the finished film piece (and also with an eye on how to use primary sources at the Woeful Puppet’s 3 exhibitions differently).
It was agreed that Sarah (pictured here) who is researching the part religious schisms and changes to the laws in England led to Lady Jane Grey’s execution should deliver this.
A great start to what we are sure will be a wonderful heritage output.
Read Psalm 51
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.
On 10 August at 6pm at St Mary’s Stoke Newington, N16 we are holding the launch of our new Heritage Lottery funded project WOEFUL PUPPET.
