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.

We found ourselves asking… Why are humans drawn to collecting ‘trinkets’? And how is a Russian rat’s tail from 1854 relevant today?
