WHAT PEOPLE SAY 

‘A month on from watching the show my 2 year old insists on acting out the show on a daily basis.’
ANDY, PARENT

‘Perfectly pitched to engage with the youngest children…in creating work for the very young, it’s vital for Early Years Practitioners and Artists to work together. The Herd are a great example of how this approach can succeed.’
HEADTEACHER, MCMILLAN NURSERY

'With playful staging and simple language, The Herd, a theatre company from Hull, have created a microscopic world of epic adventure… With or without kids, it’s a howling delight.'
THE GUARDIAN
