Tower Bridge Museum and Wilton’s Music Hall Shadow Puppet Project

Seven New to English families were chosen from Osmani to take a creative look at the history of London. Mum’s and Dad’s worked and performed alongside their children. They wrote a script, made shadow puppets and helped to compose the music to describe the story of Frank McClean who flew his hydroplane under Tower Bridge in 1912. Everybody really enjoyed the project which culminated in a public performance at Wilton’s. They shared the stage with other children from Tower Hamlets schools who had similarly been involved with preparing their own fascinating stories about the city we all live in.
