We have teamed up with the Phoenix cinema and Cuttlefish to develop a new free educational app.

The app will provide iPhone and Android smartphone users with a rich multimedia guide to explore the rise, fall and reinvention of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.

It includes photographs, videos and detailed information about 26 of its historical buildings, brought to life by stories from the people who lived and worked in them.

The app is available for free for iPhone users from iTunes, and for Android users from Google Play, by searching for St George’s. The information contained on the app can also be viewed here.

An exhibition showing some of the materials and stories uncovered in the research project will be on display at Phoenix from November.
