The Courthouse Hotel, Toft Road, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 0PB
‘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.
This new immersive theatrical performance from creative company RE-DOCK (working with the local community and LGBTQ artists across Greater Manchester) is a fresh interpretation of the trial and will take place in the court room where the trial took place (now The Courthouse Hotel).
Created by artist Hwa Young Jung, an exhibition and virtual reality experience is also part of this landmark art event.
