When you come to a Theatre-Hikes™ performance you are greeted by our Hike Leader who will guide you on a short walk through the scenes of our show. You will sit for a bit and then pick up your seats, blankets etc and walk a short bit to the next scene, and so on.

We do our best to bring you back to where you met us, so you can jump back in your car, bike, bus or train and on your way.

We recommend you bring:

  • a camping chair (that folds up small and is easy to carry),
  • Reusable Water Bottle/s
    (All Venues have water, but not disposable bottles),
  • dress comfortably and
  • wear shoes to walk through nature
