The History Troupe has expanded significantly in the past year. Over 1,500 students have been in our workshops; 1,300 people have visited the ABP Pump House; 3,500 people have seen our shows and over 7,500 have seen our Exhibitions.

Our social media platform is building momentum with hundreds of hits on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our emerging blog content. Over 15,500 people watched a video of our street play The Mystery of Ravenser Odd.

With strong content making heritage happen, we have moved from page to stage in many ways. There are workshops answering school needs on employability and creativity; plays and performances across the community and now exhibitions drawn from our InPort Stories Digital Archive.

The History Troupe continues to grow…
