With an original musical score by Benji Bower, circus skills and a huge heart, Hetty Feather is a terrific adventure story!

 

The perfect treat for the whole family.

Many real children experienced childhoods similar to Hetty’s, growing up in the Foundling Hospital. Thomas Coram started this ‘Hospital for the Maintenance and Education of Exposed and Deserted Children in 1739.

This was the first special children’s charity it the UK, and over two and a half centuries it has rescued more that 27,000 babies. It continues today simply as Coram, helping children who are alone or at risk, marginalized in school or without a real home.
