In the last twenty years, the art of safe cracking has tragically declined… Tim Hunkin.
A great family show suitable for illegal engineers of all ages which takes a humorous (and practical) look at the forgotten art of cracking codes and picking locks.
Tim Hunkin functions on the fringes between art and technology. As a cartoonist, his strip, The Rudiments of Wisdom, ran in the Observer for 15 years. As an engineer, he has masterminded a range of innovative projects to bring the public closer to technology and won a NESTA award.
He also wrote and presented the award winning Channel 4 series The Secret Life of Machines – an experience which allowed him to ‘have fun with electricity for the first time’.
As part of the Humber Mouth, Tim Hunkin will be tackling safes and safe breaking. There will be a live, on-stage demonstration. Naughty.

Roger Beaumont lives alone in his crumbling mansion in the remote Sussex countryside. When his peace and solitude are disturbed by violent forces from the modern world, Roger defends himself the only way he knows how, facing the rigor of the law whilst becoming an unlikely hero of the popular press. Now home from prison, Roger is made to confront his past and his drastic actions. The story he tells reveals a far more complex and agonising chain of events than the press have been led to believe.
Based on recent events in the media, An Englishman’s Home is a solo performance by writer Richard Vergette. Directed by Andy Pearson.
