What the Client Says

"What we've got here is something that far exceeds any of my hopes and expectations. We've got some astonishingly imaginative work done by some very creative people who have used modern technology to take the history and to treat it very faithfully but to treat it in a way that is accessible to us in the 21st century."
Sir Peter Soulsby, Leicester City Mayor

What the Client Says

“Through AV we re-create this medieval world full of political intrigue and the atmosphere of battle balanced against the clinical ‘scientific’ displays and the quiet and contemplative graveside area.”
Iain Gordon, Richard III Visitor Centre Director
