Magdalen Tower

Working with The Living Archive, Red Phoenix is facilitating workshops based around the history of the Magdalen Tower in Stony Stratford.

The development of an education pack, and filming with ACT OUT & ACT UP youth drama groups will tel the story of the tower and its connection to the town, and leave a leagcy of the project for the people of Stony Stratford and the local areas.
