This new immersive work from creative company RE-DOCK (working with the local community and LGBTQ artists across Greater Manchester) will combine an exhibition with virtual reality opportunities. Participants will be able to explore different viewpoints of the trial and of Turing’s work. The piece is being created by artist Hwa Young Jung and will take place in the court room where the trial took place (now The Courthouse Hotel). A traditional theatrical performance is also part of this landmark art event.
Regina v Turing and Murray has been commissioned by Heritage Open Days to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality and changes to gay rights with the Sexual Offences Act of 1967 as one of four ‘Unsung Stories’ which will take place as part of Heritage Open Days in the UK this September, coordinated centrally by the National Trust with funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
It is part of a collaboration with SHIFT (Cheshire East Council) and Knutsford Promenades Association.
