We are a new collective, formed by freelancers with wide experience of working at many of the UK’s leading heritage sites, to create events and performances across the country.

Our team consists of historical researchers, musicians, writers, directors, videographers, performers and educators.

We exist to connect people with the UK’s past, to inspire audiences to feel a fresh sense of identity with the place in which they live and the historical sites they visit.

Our events are ambitious, accessible and inclusive, pushing the boundaries of historical interpretation whilst remaining mindful of the sensitive sites we work in.
