In 2019, with the support of Nottinghamshire County Council, we created our first bespoke heritage project in our hometown of Hucknall. The week saw Lord Byron visit lots of new schools and introduce himself to over 275 children.
The week consisted of lots of bizarre stories from Byron’s life and included a New Romantic art lesson and a lesson in creative writing and poetry.
Local MP Mark Spencer praised the idea, saying: “This is such a positive scheme in Hucknall. I think it’s so important that children learn about their local history and heritage, taking these workshops directly to schools is a great way of doing that.”
“I want to say a huge well done to Tom at Blue Kazoo, and to Councillor Phil Rostance who I know has been instrumental in getting the scheme rolled out to school children in Hucknall.”
