StoryTrails Tour 2022



1 - 2 July 2022

Omagh was the very first stop on the StoryTrails tour. We loved opening our doors to a range of townsfolk, MP's and the Mayor, and showing them the untold stories of their beautiful town.


7 - 8 July 2022

Next, we headed to Scotland with Dundee being stop number two on the tour. We learnt about Olympians, pie shops and Oor Wullie! Haste Ye Back!


12 - 13 July 2022

Dumfries now, and what a stop! We crowned plenty of Queens, dived into incredible VR and loved sharing the hidden stories of your town with you.


16 - 17 July 2022

Onto the iconic town of Blackpool, where we met Queens of a different kind. Our AR trail explored the rich history of the LGBTQ+ community and the immersive map showed us just how pretty this seaside town is!


22 - 23 July 2022

Bradford was stop number five, and what a city! We trailed around the city centre learning about the godfather of film, unearthed the hidden stories in the immersive cinema and made 3D scans of plenty of visitors!


27 - 28 July 2022

The mighty city of Sheffield next, and we were treated to not one, but TWO AR trails! We learnt about Ethel Hayhtornthwaite, one of the UK's first environmental pioneers in 'The Green Queen of Sheffield', and master cutler Grace Horn in 'Crafty Grace'!


30 - 31 July 2022

Lincoln was next up! We discovered the amazing stories of the town through the 3D map, helped a cheeky Imp find his way home, then made some Imp's of our own!


6 - 7 August 2022

Onto Wolverhampton, where fashion was the talk of the town. We learnt about the sales industry and how it's grown over the last few decades. Wolverhampton, you've got a deal!


10 - 11 August 2022

Next we crossed the border into Wales, where we first stopped in picturesque Swansea. The famous Joe's ice cream was the talk of the town, and our trail. We slurped our way through history with immersive tech, with a flake on top!


13 - 14 August 2022

Newport was next! We met the Freckletons and followed their incredible journey to putting music at the beating heart of Newport, what a sweet tune!


20 - 21 August 2022

Crossing the bridge back to England, we stopped at Bristol to learn the amazing story of the iconic Sweet Mart. We commissioned a beautiful mural painted in their honour by some fantastic local artists!


27 - 28 August 2022

Swindon was up next! We learnt about the Hoopers, the photography giants who were making memes and photoshopping images well over 100 years ago! Say cheese!


3 - 4 September 2022

3.. 2.. 1.. Blast Off! We rocketed into Slough next, to learn how the town played a crucial role in getting us to space! We had an astronomical time in VR and with our incredible immersive cinema.


10 - 11 September 2022

Home stretch now, and we opened our doors to the people of Lambeth to show them the secrets of their area. Our AR trail focused on the incredible Winifred Atwell, the first black artist to have a number 1 single in the UK, and the immersive cinema saw hidden stories from all over the borough!


18 - 19 September 2022

Our final leg was the wonderful Lewisham, specifically Catford, where we had a purrrrrfect AR trail, complete with VR, Big Me Little Me and our immersive cinema. What a way to end the tour!
