TEN FOOT TALES 

Get down the Ten Foot and hear some stories by kids from Hull. We’ll teleport across the galaxy, we'll drive an Audi R8, we’ll battle Zombie snakes, we’ll journey into the ocean on a boat made from a bath, we’ll cross the arctic to meet a cowboy penguin, we’ll sing with Nick Minaj and we’ll do a whole lot more.

 

Through weekly workshops with children in Years 4, 5 and 6 at Bridgeview Whitehouse Pupil Referral Unit, The Herd worked with four classes to create four stories.  We turned these stories into a show. It was unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
