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.
