Event Details

Please meet Hedgemond the Hunter - a brave and stubborn little hedgehog. Down in the wild woods he proudly tends his beloved house, but there are some animals who just can’t understand what the fuss is about.

‘Hedgehog’s House’ is a story about caring for the place you call home. Set in the unspoilt environment of the forest, we find the wild creatures arguing about what home means: is it simply a place we should take for granted or is it something to be cherished and protected? Despite the persuasions of charming Miss Fox and the jeers of the angry wolf, Hedgemond steadfastly proves that his home is his castle, reminding us all to be true to ourselves and safeguard what we care for.

Told through the universal language of music and poetry, this seemingly simple story from a far-away country actually holds an enduring and important message that we would all do well to remember. 

The music was written by the highly talented composer, song-writer and musician, Emily Leather, in cooperation with the Creative Director, Elinor Moran.

Conway Hall

Conway Hall is a landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life.

Conway Hall is owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society, which was first opened in 1929. The name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway (1832 - 1907), anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.

The Society began as a dissident congregation in 1787 in rebellion against the doctrine of eternal hell. By 1793 it had its first premises in Bishopsgate. In 1817 William Johnson Fox became minister of the congregation which in 1824 built a new chapel in South Place (in the City of London). This the Society occupied for 102 years and the name was still commemorated in the title of the Society, although it moved from South Place in 1926 to build its present home in Red Lion Square which was opened in 1929.

The Hall now hosts a wide variety of lectures, classes, performances, community and social events. It is renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought.

Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series (now Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) - are the longest-running of their kind in Europe. The ethos of "affordable classical music for all" still remains.

Our Library holds the Ethical Society's collection, which is the largest and most comprehensive Humanist Research resource of its kind in the United Kingdom.
