On 28th September 2017, we held a unique event. Watford Football Club let us perform an episode of our Hornet Heaven podcast inside Vicarage Road stadium.
Our stories are a mix of fact and fantasy about being a Watford fan for the rest of eternity, and our original thought was that it would be a bit special for some of our listeners to be sitting — in real life — where the story was taking place.
But the club helped us turn it into something really very special indeed. They let us start our story in the Directors Box, move on to the dug-outs, and act out the story’s pivotal scene in the home dressing room.
On top of that, the club let us use the floodlights, the PA system, players’ shirts as props, even the Graham Taylor trophy.
It was a wonderfully memorable night — for us putting on the show, and for the small audience that we were able to invite. We raised more than £400 for the Watford FC CSE Trust.
We support an amazing club. Thank you Watford FC.
Here are a few pictures from the event, and comments from afterwards, to give you a sense of how special it is be a Watford fan.
