RMS: The Lion Queen

Step into the Real Medway and Swale and uncover hidden stories and artwork. Find and photograph characters that come alive and tell you their tales, as you explore the town of Chatham. Each episode will be a new experience.

The Lion Queen is based on the true story of Ellen Bright, a 17 year old lion tamer who met an untimely end in Chatham in 1849 when she was attacked by one of her tigers. This story imagines Ellen’s ghost searching for release and her crown amongst a purgatory full of circus performers.

Using Haunted Planet’s augmented reality engine, Real Medway and Swale is a series of games, allowing players to navigate their way through stories created by local writers and artists.

This project is funded by Ideas Test - Creative People and Places Swale and Medway and created with students from UCA Chatham.
