Making Invisible People Visible
With funding from United St Saviours Church Trust the elders volunteer Invisible People team worked with groups in North Southwark and Bermondsey to create performing material specific to children visiting small local museums. Thanks to our collaborators from The Brunel Museum, Ronald Grant Archive and Cinema Museum there is now a larger team of over 60’s Invisible People available to perform their short stories, poems, scenes from plays and conjuring tricks at festivals and events. The material was also shown as part of the Totally Thames Festival at Brunel Museum in September and again at The Cinema Museum in October where the Special Guest Artiste was Laurie Marsh. Laurie was born in 1930 at Lambeth Walk and went onto have a distinguished career as film and theatre impresario, developer and philanthropist . Laurie entertained a sold out audience with his extraordinary repertoire of conjuring tricks and life anecdotes. His book The Philanthropist’s Tale was sold in aid of The Cinema Museum and exciting news about a sustainable future for the Cinema Museum was announced on the evening.
