We were delighted to take a free public performance of 'Local Heroes' to Bromley Central Library on Sat Oct 26th, funded by Culture Seeds and The National Lottery Heritage Fund. "Wonderful, inspiring and moving", "a lovely time for all", "great idea", "brilliant, fun and informative", "fantastic!" said audience in their feedback
We recently educated, inspired and entertained KS2 children at Castlecombe Primary School with 'Local Heroes', see some production images here
Local Heroes is an interactive performance workshop designed for Key Stage 2. It has been created specifically for the children of Bromley to help them discover some of the amazing past and present residents of the Borough, the places they are connected with, and how their legacies can inspire us today.
