Joanna Lumley narrates Storytrails Dumfries
StoryTrails is a free, live and unique immersive storytelling experience, where untold stories from the past are brought to life through the magic of the 3D internet using augmented and virtual reality to reanimate public spaces in towns and cities across the UK. Audiences will time-travel via the wonder of new technologies to experience untold local histories where they happened.
Centred around the Ewart Library in Dumfries, as well as on the streets of the town itself, the events feature digital experiences that allow people to experience their town in completely new ways through the magic of augmented (AR), virtual reality (VR) and immersive cinema.
The Dumfries AR trail is narrated by actress Joanna Lumley. The trail celebrates Dumfries’ 90-year tradition of crowning a ‘Queen of the South’ at the annual Guid Nychburris or Good Neighbours Festival. The trail features queens throughout history, from crowd-pleasing carnival queens to rebel queens, and modern-day community queens, who defy stereotyping.
