‘Our Lady Star of the Sea’ is a late-Victorian Catholic church situated in Lowestoft town centre on the East coast of England. As part of a major refurbishment the church wanted to improve its visitor experience in a way that was robust and suitable to its challenging coastal and urban environment.
They engaged the University of York Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture who came up with interpretation ideas, and recommended Info-Point as the delivery mechanism. Key points were the ability to host a 360 degree panoramic image with information hotspots, the provision of a webcam to enable intimate live views of endangered Kittiwake gulls nesting in the tower, and the installation of ruggedised tablets for volunteer guides to use during tours.
Our Open Days have gone really well. We introduced it to visitors as a means to do their conducted tour, to start where they wanted and to look at what they were interested in. That allowed them to relax and go at their own pace. Some visitors who used it stayed for more than an hour.Tony Walmsley, Project Director
