Easter Excursions

With the spring bulbs blooming and some of our own over-winter projects coming into fruition, we thought it was high-time we shared with you some of our newest work, all of which is open to visitors over the 2017 Easter Holidays.


St Augustine’s Abbey, Canterbury – English Heritage

Last weekend saw the launch of new interpretation at St Augustine’s Abbey in Canterbury. English Heritage commissioned us to design a trail and other fun and games to help interpret this UNESCO world heritage site. Visitors of all ages can now follow in the footsteps of Brother Goscelyn to explore the museum and Abbey Ruins, and other activities include a ‘Monk Name Generator’ and a ‘Snakes and Abbots’ game where you race to become Abbot of the Abbey.

The new trail for St Augustine’s Abbey comes sown into a monk’s habit. Habits come in adult sizes too, so there’s dress-up fun for all the family (sorry….!)


Langham Dome, Langham – North Norfolk Historic Building’s Trust

A little closer to home, we installed two new touch-screens at Langham Dome ready for their Easter opening. The first screen, a World War Two Slang Quiz, tests visitors on their slang-knowledge and highlights the black humour that helped personnel at RAF Langham keep going during wartime. Using archive photos of airmen stationed there, it gives explanations of slang terms, usually irreverent, and each correct answer sees you rise up through the RAF ranks. The second touch-screen is a timeline exploring the squadrons that were based at RAF Langham during its operation.

A question from the Langham Dome Slang Quiz shows the terms: Brown Jobs, Best blues and Battle Dress Blues, alongside three photographs.

Sheringham Park, Sheringham – National Trust

Finally, we worked on an update at Sheringham Park Visitor Centre for the 2017 season. The new exhibition ‘The Art of Nature’ looks at the view that famous landscape designer Humphrey Repton was trying to achieve through the window of Sheringham Hall. The exhibition space reflects the interior of a grand drawing room with a timeline of events presented as a gallery of framed pictures. The current view from the hall (which is not open to the public) is compared and contrasted with Repton’s original design.

We’ll be publishing cases studies of these projects on our website soon, but if you can’t wait, why not call in for a visit!

Happy Easter!
