Creative Wiltshire is working with the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre to produce a locative media mobile app for Lacock. Last year the Centre successfully gained Heritage Lottery Funding to secure the historic Lacock estate archive: Lacock Unlocked is a three year project cataloging and working with materials in the archive. The app will provide a further level of on the spot interpretation for Lacock visitors, encourage them to find out more from the archives and contribute to them.
Wiltshire’s digital cinema initiative, White Horse Pictures, delivers on its promise. Three years ago the project was funded to provide high quality film exhibition for people in rural Wiltshire.
