Catford Library, 23-24 Winslade Way, Catford SE6 4JU

In line with UK Government advice that events may continue during the period of national mourning for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, StoryTrails will take place as planned this weekend at Catford Library, Lewisham. Some editorial changes have been made to the event in response to the national mood.

You will explore stories across virtual and augmented reality and via a series of installations, bringing the physical and the digital together and breathing new life into your surroundings. Guided by a mobile AR app, you will be led at your own pace to different story points along a route with a choice of story trails to follow. Outside Catford library, you will enter a virtual story portal to begin your StoryTrails experience.

Using a mix of stunning augmented reality experiences that remix the BFI and BBC archive, you will experience history where it actually happened, revitalising the streets upon which they stand with new voices and untold stories of the past. Inside the library you will be immersed and fly through a unique virtual map of Lewisham made up of 3D models, and audio stories captured on location. You will also have the opportunity to explore further stories via bespoke virtual reality experiences on headsets.
