Church Cathedral and Castle Case Studies for VIS-BOX
Engage, retain and gain visitors with Church Interpretation and the Visitor Information Service Box
Visitors to a church are looking for a spiritual and enlightening experience.
Churches are important and beautiful buildings with a pivotal place in the heritage and history of their respective areas.
Sharing the story of your Church will inform, engage and delight the people who spend time within its hallowed walls.
Most people will appreciate the beauty of a church but many will not understand its function and how it has developed over the centuries.
We can offer a complete solution to provide you with the engagement tools plus
learning and interpretive materials and assistance with funding.

Example: St. Editha's Church - Polesworth Abbey
The children found it easy to access the VIS-BOX on their trip to Polesworth Abbey and were completely engaged by the series of professional smart tours of the church.
The films of the Belltower in action and the workings of the church organ gave them views not normally available to them.
