New Website Launched!

Wimborne Community Theatre’s new archival website was launched at Priest’s House Museum, on March 14th, 2014.

Annette Brooke, MP, said  ‘My congratulations go to Wimborne Community Theatre for 25 years of inspiring work with young people and adults and now the launch of their website. This facilitates looking back at past projects and forward to new and exciting interpretations of local and national events.

Guests were given a tour of the website, and watched ‘Alice and Viola’ and ‘A Tale of Hours’ made by local school children, reinterpreting scenes from past WCT productions. Click here to watch the films.

Guests included Annette Brooke, Lib Dem MP for East Dorset and North Poole, the Mayor of Wimborne, Councillor Andrew Hampton, Community Officer at Dorset History Centre, Maria Gayton, and Priest’s House Museum Curator, Emma Ayling.

The developers, Dorset Creative, commented that they are “delighted with the new online space, including an interactive timeline built with javascript…[that] ties in with the paper-versions of these documents (and more!)…available to view in reality at Dorset History Centre.”
