Join the Sturminster Newton Heritage Trust and Sturminster Newton High School this Sunday for a celebration evening to showcase the results of the Swanskin Seafarers of Sturminster project.
From 8pm – 10:30pm on Sunday 17th July, students from Sturminster Newton High School will host an evening of entertainment at Sturminster Newton Mill, with live music, light refreshments, and a Shadow Puppet Film created by the students projected onto the Mill.
The project, funded by the Association of Independent Museums, seeks to explore the links between Sturminster Newton and Newfoundland, Canada, focused on the young people from Dorset who travelled across the Atlantic over 200 years. 30 Students from Sturminster Newton High School have contributed to the project, undertaking independent research, swapping stories of shared heritage with schoolchildren in Newfoundland, and working with artists to create their Shadow Puppet Film.
Visitors are invited to bring picnics to enjoy on the grass, and evening tours of the historic Mill will be running throughout the event.
Please note that the Mill car park will be closed, and the Mill will be closing for regular visitors at 4pm to accommodate the set-up of this event.
No RSVP required, please just show up and help us to celebrate the results of the fabulous partnership between Sturminster Newton High School, local artists, schools in Newfoundland, and the Sturminster Newton Heritage Trust.
