2021 will mark 25th birthday of Lara Croft
One of the stars of an augmented reality self-guided trail around Derby, Lara Croft may be fictional, but the intelligent and athletic archaeologist – beloved by millions in games and films – was “born” at Core Design in Derby. Lara first appeared in the video game Tomb Raider in 1996 and after a couple more games, Crystal Dynamics took over the series in 2003. She holds six Guinness World Records, and was the first video game to make the transition to film. https://bit.ly/3dZ8aDp

Gilbert White’s House & Museum has introduced a new online campaign – #BeMoreGilbert – designed to help people at home connect with the natural world around them. The world’s first ecologist, Gilbert White is a lockdown inspiration, taking his pioneering observations from his garden and local walks, and this helps people around the world share their nature discoveries from their garden, local daily walk or even their gardening triumphs. www.gilbertwhiteshouse.org.uk/

Let this entertain you
Stoke Reads have brought a very special guest to their latest Story Quest. In Just the Ticket, the characters are frantically searching Burslem Park after losing their tickets to Stoke-born Robbie Williams’ planned “homecoming gig” at Port Vale stadium. They meet a dark-haired stranger in a Port Vale cap who seems very familiar… Although the gig itself is postponed, families who live within walking distance of Burslem Park (and three other parks in Stoke-on-Trent) are invited to meet fictional Robbie as part of their daily exercise. https://bit.ly/3fXJVXL
