Elan Exhibition - pulling it all together

The Elan Valley visitor centre had been missing a cornerstone of any popular attraction ... an Exhibition! It was nice then for us to be asked to put together the new exhibition, 'This is Elan'. This was a true team effort. Ruth Lloyd produced great content, researching the incredible history of the Elan Valley, not least the building of the dams and  the diversity of nature and wildlife. Our role was to mould this rich content into a series of information panels (in English and Welsh languages), video and photographic presentations and interactive displays. We are indebted to our friends at Hereford Signs and Labels who worked with us on production and to quite sharp deadlines! The litmus of course is whether the exhibition interests and entertains the diverse mix of visitors of all ages who may not know too much about this beautiful and fascinating place. The indications are that it has been well received.

Orphans on film

We finally overcame our trepidation and now we see the quality of the 'Behind the Door in Herefordshire' video (below) we are glad we did.
