We are very proud of our Young Creators who have been busy working away all summer creating HMM Escape Rooms!
Our group of 16-24 year olds researched Headstone's history and worked together to create unique ways to retell these stories.
Victims/Guests in the Escape Rooms need to hunt for clues, solve riddles, meet suspicious characters and break codes to get out of Headstone Manor safely!

Last week our Young Creators put on an evening for invited guests to trial out these Escape Rooms and it was a great success with visitors just about escaping in time!

We look forward to sharing their fantastic work with you soon.
