Uncovering the Stories behind One of London’s Best Kept Secrets
Centre Screen has recently been appointed to work on an exciting project for The Postal Museum, opening in 2017. Mail Rail was an underground railway network, running beneath the streets of London between 1927 and 2003. The system carried mail between Paddington and Whitechapel, and at its peak it transported 4-million letters a day.
As part of The Postal Museum – a new heritage attraction revealing five centuries of social history surrounding one of Britain’s most iconic services – Mail Rail will open to the public for the first time in Spring 2017, with a brand new motion ride experience and exhibition area produced by Centre Screen. As visitors travel through underground tunnels, large-scale immersive projections and evocative soundtracks will transport the visitors back in time to wartime Britain and the heyday of the 1920s. Centre Screen will be working with The Postal Museum and Haley Sharpe Design
to capture the story of this hidden industrial treasure.
