Kabosh is delighted to announce it has received £13,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, “Foundation of the City” which will be performed in St. George’s Church, Belfast, in November 2013.
The heritage surrounding the 400th anniversary of Belfast city’s charter status will be researched, recorded and shared through a series of activities. A theatre production exploring the foundation of Belfast and commemorating the 400th anniversary of the city’s charter will be staged as part of the Belfast Festival at Queens in late October/early November 2013. It will be staged at St George’s Church in High Street, a Grade A listed building whose restoration was also funded by HLF and who are celebrating their bicentenary this year. Historical research will be undertaken to record the musical history and an oral archive of musical heritage and local history will be created. To share this heritage with others a mobile phone app will be developed, a theatre programme produced, historical tours of the Tennent Street area offered and a documentary created on the process involved in staging the performance.
Kabosh has been awarded funding alongside six other fantastic projects in Northern Ireland. Click /perch/resources/hlf-small-grants-march-13-pr.pdf to read the full HLF press release.
