On 3rd August 2021 twelve young people from the Westminster Community Reminiscence and Archive Group (WCRAG) visited the National Archives at Kew to find out more about the Cato Street Conspiracy from primary source material.  This was part of a seven day summer film project that involved visits to Cato Street, the British Library, Westminster Abbey, the Household Cavalry Museum and the People’s History Museum in Manchester.  At the end of their day, Rachel Hillman, Education Officer invited the group to participate in a showcase event at National Archives on February 15th 2022.

To facilitate participation in this event the group worked with Sav Kyriacou of Digital Works to edit the final 48 minute documentary film in to a shortened version for presentation.  This is a result of their work.  If you haven’t got time to watch the full 48 minute version this is the next best thing!
