If statues could talk, what stories would they tell?

We were pleased to welcome some local legends to the studio recently:

The iconic City Hall Lions…

Polymath and author Sir Thomas Browne…

Anchoress and theologian Julian of Norwich…

The mysterious feral child Peter the Wild Boy…

One of Shakespeare’s original players, the comedian Will Kempe…

Well they weren’t literally in our studio – but they were here in spirit! 

10 of Norwich’s most historic statues have been given the power of speech. Talking Statues is an exciting project designed by Sign London and led by production agency Creative Nation. Just by swiping your smartphone you can hear these statues telling their stories!

We at JMS were delighted to be able to record some of those stories. We welcomed into our voice booth comedian Adam Buxton; writer, poet and director Molly Naylor; local comedy duo The Nimmo Twins; writer and broadcaster Keith Skipper; poet and writer Luke Wright; and BAFTA Award Winning actress Olivia Colman. Zoe Telford and Stephen Fry also contributed their vocal talents to the trail. 

So next time you are wandering around our UNESCO City of Literature take a moment to pause and listen to some of the fascinating tales our county’s heroes have to tell.
