See your hometown in a new light

StoryTrails, a unique, multimedia storytelling experience is coming to Wolverhampton on 6 - 7 August.

It offers you the opportunity to experience Wolverhampton in a completely new way by using technology to bring hidden stories of your town/city to life.  Drop into Wolverhampton Library, Snow Hill and try out a range of different immersive and virtual reality experiences or go on a guided tour of your city with the StoryTrails app as your tour guide.

In Wolverhampton the augmented reality app reveals the untold history of Wolverhampton’s fashion world, from the factory floor of Courtaulds to the pink powder room of Beattie’s department store.

The tour is narrated by Wolverhampton born actress Frances Barber, who's recent TV roles include Doctor Who and Silk.

Time travellers need no previous technical experience and electronic mobile devices can be borrowed for the tour if you don’t have your own.

All activities are completely free so just turn up and join in.
