'The Big Bromley Hero Hunt' (formerly known as 'Local Heroes') is an interactive performance designed for Key Stage 2 pupils in schools, and as a community event for the public. 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 and in the future.


'The Big Bromley Hero Hunt' comes with follow up materials for schools to encourage further learning; and an enrichment activity to challenge families to have fun discovering more of Bromley's heritage together.
