Grace Darling

Beacon Films worked with RNLI Grace Darling Museum to create a series of films and an original music composition that tell the story of Grace Darling, the woman who - with her father - rescued nine survivors from the stricken vessel: Forefarshire off the Northumbrian coast in September 1838.

The films and music have been woven together to create an interactive exhibit that screens in the Grace Darling Museum and went on a U.K. tour in 2019.

The project was made possible thanks to National Lottery players with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and further support from Spirit of 2012.
