Tim Powell Producer, Lost Palace (Historic Royal Palaces)
Tim Powell is a creative producer at Historic Royal Palaces, the independent charity responsible for looking after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, Banqueting Hose, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. He works in the Creative Programming and Interpretation team, the creative directors of the visitor experience for over four million visitors per year.
His focus is on how technology can be used to deepen visitors' connection to historic spaces, stories and characters - by either augmenting the core visitor offer or creating new types of visitor experience. The challenge is to do this without detracting from what makes palaces unique: the promise of travelling back in time and escaping the modern world.
