An immersive audio experience about the University of Hertfordshire

'Walk This Play' is an exciting new audio play that lets your imagination fly; immerse in a unique and independently led journey of imagination and discovery!

UH Arts + Culture have commissioned a bespoke audio-guided storytelling walk for the Festival of Ideas. Created by award-winning theatre company ThickSkin, Walk This Play® is a captivating audio play that transports audiences into a series of fascinating stories which help you see the University from a new perspective.

Through narration and original music blended with the sights and sounds around you, Walk This Play® takes you on a journey through various locations across the College Lane campus. Using your own phone and headphones, the walks are self-led, taking guidance from the downloadable app. The walk takes approximately 30 minutes.

Simply download the app, pop on your headphones and walk!
