Heritage Horror

The Heritage Horror Show is a hair-raisingly exciting new project with Alexandra Palace.

On our Heritage Horror blog you can find out more about what our participants have been up to.

Young people from across London who are interested in heritage and the arts have joined together to investigate the more macabre aspects of theatre through a brilliant film-making venture. Our budding filmmakers have collaborated with professional film company Chocolate Films to transform their research and ideas about Elizabethan theatre into a drama-documentary, Playhouses, Pickpockets and Plague, which you can watch below.

On Wednesday 13 December 2017 a screening of Playhouses, Pickpockets and Plague was held at Alexandra Palace's Transmitter Hall:

Meanwhile, twenty-five Year 8 students from St Thomas More School are collaborating with performance artist Kazuko Hohki to produce and perform in an immersive exhibition focusing on nineteenth-century theatre which will take place at Alexandra Palace in March. So far, they have enjoyed a research trip to the Jack the Ripper Museum, acting workshops and a presentation from Alexandra Park’s curator/archivist.

This project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
