This great idea arrives as many buildings are celebrating the various annual Open House and Heritage Open Day schemes across the UK.
The creative people at St George’s Theatre, Great Yarmouth have compiled an interesting self-guided heritage tour of their historic building which is most conveniently available to visitors and those unable to visit.
As they say themselves, “Follow in the footsteps of generations gone by & hear the fascinating stories of St George’s Theatre. Explore the stunning 300 year old church, a gem of Baroque architecture and learn about its turbulent history and its near brush with demolition…..”
You can access the tour in person, by using the QR codes handily placed around the building. Or, if you are unable to visit the theatre, you can still enjoy the tour from the comfort of your own home, through their website, details of which below.
It’s a novel way to significantly increase access to a building with an engaging history, and I hope you’ll give it a go.
