We had a great couple of days in Kidderminster last week working on a bit of R+D for a new project that will be apart of KAF Arts in 2016. It's celebrating the amazing music heritage of Kidderminster from the rock gods of Robert Plant and John Bonham right through to the electronic talents of Quantic.

It was great to spend a day with the entire team working on the NESTA R+D project today at Leicester Castle. The Locly guys came down to Leicester and we started to test the strength of the beacons in situ and the great news is that it all looks good to go. We're back in the studio tomorrow working on the tracks, exciting stuff...

Its a week of site visits this week, Paul and i went back to a few of the Birmingham Museum Trusts sites to finalise ideas before we present next week. It was a beautiful day which bodes well and Aston Hall, Blakesley Hall and Sarehole Mill all looked splendid in the sunshine. Now all we need to do it write the presentation.

We then spent some time exploring creative ideas for the tour at Leicester castle and some really exciting ways of how to trigger those ibeacons..
