H. G. Wells' The Time Machine
The heritage book we explored in 2020 was H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. On its centenary of publication, this extraordinary sci fi novella was recognised for its significance in our British literary heritage. 125 years since the Henry Holt and William Heinemann publications in 1895, we explored its relevance to today's world: how H.G. Wells' vivid words speak to us in the context of our contemporary condition. It was an investigation long overdue and in the Covid crisis, took on new significance. We extended the festival from its planned 18 days to three months, offering online projects before the outdoor art could eventually be exhibited.
