The Sand House project team’s first major project was “Sand House – The Elephant in the Room“, in 2012. Since then, The Sand House Charity has been formed. The charity’s first significant venture was a six-week long exhibition in Doncaster’s premier shopping centre, in summer 2017. More information can be found at the Frenchgate Centre Exhibition page.
The Sand House is going to be featured in Doncaster’s new Danum Gallery, Library and Museum building, opening in 2021. The content is being finalised and installation should take place in late-2020. We shall provide more details in due course.
The charity’s greatest success so far came in spring 2018, when we brought the Sand House play to the stage, along with a host of wraparound activities.
More recently, given the restriction caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we took a different approach to Heritage Open Days in 2020. We produced an online ‘event’, in the form of a 20-minute long video entitled “The Sand House: Then & Now”.
On 29 May 2021 the Danum Gallery, Library and Museum opened to the public for the first time. It includes a permanent display dedicated to the Sand House. The content of the display was produced, almost in its entirety, by The Sand House Charity.
