“Derby Museums are delighted to share with you ‘The Derby Ram’
– a collaborative animated poem based on lantern slides found in our collection, in celebration of BBC Arts#MuseumPassion– and to get you excited for the Derby Ram Trail.
The story features the Derby Ram, which according to legend was ten yards high with enormous horns and a huge flowing fleece, and tells how people came from all over to see it. We are excited that people will once again flock to Derby to enjoy the free family art trail from 27 May to 22 August 2021.
We hope you enjoy the boastful nature of the piece and we would like to thank all of the wonderful collaborators who took time out of lockdown to film themselves delivering this piece and Mediabox Productions for editing and animating this piece.
