February - March 2020
Tower Bridge have commissioned internationally acclaimed artist, inventor, and filmmaker Di Mainstone, to write and direct a unique film that will celebrate the iconic bridge’s 125th anniversary.
The film will re-imagine the Bridge as a giant musical instrument and draw inspiration from one of the first women to work on the Bridge - Hannah Griggs, a cook for the Bridge Master and his family between 1911 and 1915. In a remarkable twist, the film will feature some of Hannah’s descendants.
Di Mainstone has previously developed instruments that play the Brooklyn Bridge, Clifton Suspension Bridge and most recently Sunderland’s new Northern Spire Bridge.
