PEGLEG PRODUCTIONS SITE IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
In November 2020 Pegleg Productions was among 162 organisations to receive a lifeline grant from the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund, receiving £9,500 to progress and develop 'Searching For the Grey Lady: A Ghost From WW1 at the RNOH'.
Grants from the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund protected heritage sites to ensure that jobs and access to arts, culture and heritage in local communities were protected during the challenges of the Pandemic.
This funding enabled Pegleg Productions to develop 'Searching for the Grey Lady: A Ghost From WW1 at the RNOH" into a series of Podcast episodes tracing the history of the RNOH Stanmore from its’ inception until the aftermath of the First World War, composed of contemporary accounts in newspapers and archives discovered during our explorations at the RNOH - performed by RNOH staff, clinicians, patients, and the whole spectrum of those involved with the hospital, reading excerpts from the archives and recording their readings at home on their phone.
A very big thank you to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, and Department for Culture Media and Sport!
Pegleg Productions wants to thank all those involved, who in spite of the challenges of COVID, worked to deliver the Podcast in creative collaboration with award-winning hospital radio Radio Brockley.
