Our Current Programme

Being able to see inside a life amazed me and made me more curious.’,

Our programme for the academic year 2019/20 is currently in development. We are expanding our work through the academic year.

In addition we are beginning to explore the setting up of Extension Projects – a long-held ambition to extend the benefits of working with creative writing within the historical environment to young people who might not otherwise enjoy the possibility.

 Autumn Term 2019

November 6 and 13  and continuing throughout the year

Making Sense of Time – an Extension Project devised and led by Elizabeth Ferretti

at Time and Tide Museum, The Tollhouse Gaol and Cromer Museum.

In collaboration with the HLF-funded project Kick The Dust. The project has developed out of our on-going relationship with the Norfolk Museums Service and the Young Norfolk Arts Trust.

We are very sad to report that due to funding cuts in Suffolk involving the host school, Horatio House, this project has been paused until a way of going forward can be found.
