Restoring Samson’s Power

Art Happens is the UK’s only crowdfunding platform dedicated to museums and galleries, giving everyone the power to make art happen. For over 60 years Samson & Hercules was a nightclub and local landmark in Norwich. Statues of the mythical legends stood proudly outside its entrance. Then, in 2014, an amazing discovery was made. Inside the fibreglass version was a wooden statue of Samson from the 17th century.

Help a Hirsute Hero

Through a mixture of archive footage along with commentary from local presenter (and Samson expert) Chris Bailey, we told the story of how a legend was rediscovered. The Museum of Norwich needed donations to preserve and exhibit Samson in a state-of-the-art display case. So, the purpose of this film was about raising awareness and funds. The target was set at £15,000, which they managed to exceed.
