The Big Herts Hero Hunt!


‘The Big Herts Hero Hunt!’ is an interactive theatre show for family audiences or KS2 in education. It explores Hertfordshire's wonderful heritage in an exciting and dynamic way that will teach the next generation about their fantastic county and it's incredible people.


Children will enjoy learning about suffragist Louisa Puller, racing driver Lewis Hamilton, scientist Alfred Russell Wallace, writer and illustrator Beatrix Potter, well-being pioneer Ebenezer Howard and daredevil Dolly Shepherd!


The audience will help our Hero Hunters discover these people and their legacy using clues, a map, problem solving, drama, fun facts and time travel, working as a team to uncover the future heroes of Hertfordshire!


Devised by Vickie Holden, Raewyn Lippert and Minnie Wilkinson

Scripted & Directed by Minnie Wilkinson
