Amy Johnson costumed character
Chocks away! In 1930 flying sensation Amy Johnson became the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia.
By the time her plane touched down in Australia, Amy had been transformed from fish merchant’s daughter from Hull to heroic pioneer of aviation. Her amazing true-life adventure has it all and will amaze your students: international fame, crash landings, fighting for recognition in a man's world and a heroine’s welcome on the other side of the world. A truly remarkable tale from a truly inspirational woman.
Our costumed character portraying Amy Johnson brings to life this epic adventure in a lively encounter that includes plenty of opportunity for students to ask questions.
This event is recommended for supporting classroom work about flight and famous people. The performance will be tailored to the age of your students.
