Projects

Our projects create new ways to explore our history and discover some of the most important heritage sites in England.

From Stonehenge in Wiltshire to Berwick Barracks in Northumberland, we are making art, developing new plays, films, soundscapes, and exhibitions all inspired by England’s rich heritage.

We are transforming how we tell England’s stories.

The result was a creative pop-up trail and puzzles created by the NVM's internal panel of young people, the Game Changers.

These are the Ancestors: manifesting in our world, in the hopes we can stop history repeating itself.
