Performance & Participation: costumed interpretation in the museum & heritage environment

Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey, Surrey, KT8 9AU

28 September 2012

After a hugely successful workshop on Costumed Interpretation in Edinburgh last year, we will be running a similar event in London in September. Jackie Lee has organised an action-packed day of sessions around why and how interpreters use costumes to bring their subjects to life. There will be an opportunity to observe the acclaimed costumed interpreters at Hampton Court and to hear about their method.

This event is aimed at those involved in public programming and events and who are engaged in interpretation for public events, operations managers, site managers and education officers at museums, galleries and heritage sites.

Certain assumptions are often made about costumed interpretation and its uses. At this event we hope that you will learn about some new ways to use this form of interpretation and some fresh ideas to take back with you to your various organisations which will help you use costumed interpretation in the future as one of your many tools in your interpretive “kit bag”.

Speakers will include: Jackie Lee of Artemis Cultural & Educational Services, David Hicks of Edinburgh World Heritage, Chris Gidlow of Historic Royal Palaces and more.

10am - 4pm.

Book early! Don't miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in this engaging topic at a fabulous location.
