Our Heritage Lottery Funded project ‘Deep Pockets and Dirty Faces’ is back in full swing again. Over the summer we’ve been busy working on our new film ‘A Journey to Canada’, where our young people have partaken in new experiences and worked in front of the camera, to produce a historical documentary based on the Together Trust’s past. We are really excited to reveal the result of this work, which will be shown for the first time during two live performances at the Together Trust Centre in November.
‘A Journey to Canada’ builds on previous work completed by young people at the Together Trust, who have been learning about the experiences of orphans who used to live in the charity’s homes in the early 1900s. The film centres round young people today experiencing activities that would have been undertaken by these 19th century orphans, embarking on their journey to Canada to start a new life.
We are now working on two live performances in which to showcase the film. Combining multimedia and live performance it promises to be an entertaining delve into the charity’s history.

We hope you'll come and join us.
