Audio Tours: It’s time for take-off
We would like to share the journey of one of our latest clients, Tangmere Military Aviation Museum in Chichester following a successful EU Funding application. The museum, which is based in West Sussex and located in a corner of the old Tangmere Airfield, famed as an RAF fighter station from 1918 until Fighter Command left in 1958.
Open to the public, the museum receives a large number of local visitors from in and around West Sussex. Tangmere has noticed a significant change in demographics over the last few years and a key priority was to ensure that their history can be shared with everyone who visits, including their Polish visitors.
Trevor Clark, Tangmere Curator said “I found the whole process very easy, once we had decided on which key exhibits would feature on the audio guide. We provided a detailed factual guideline of each of these exhibits and the ATS production team took that and turned it into a very enjoyable and informative audio recording. The voice of the narrator (Adrian Lukis) has been very well received by our visitors too. We are still very much in our early days with these audio guides, but so far they have proved simple to operate and very easy to look after.”
ATS Heritage has the pleasure of working with many museums of all sizes across the UK. We are able to understand their constraints in terms of budget and resources, but also understand that they all have one thing on common, their amazing story to tell. We regularly create interpretation for smaller independent museums and we are able to advise on the best way to interpret their site across audio, multimedia, film and digital.
