Tinman 2018/19

Calling all Griffins, Gargoyles, Gogs, Gladies and other significant dignitaries. The highly anticipated return of the TINMAN COMPETITION has come at last!

In ancient Hackney folk lore there is a tale of mystery, majesty, courage and bravery. Each year, young men and women of the Hackney realm would volunteer as tributes to compete in tasks more arduous and dangerous than the labours of Hercules (in fact in comparison he had a pretty easy time of it) for the delight and amusement of the Emperor of  Hackney. Tasks were designed to test a competitors wit, strength, endurance, precisions and creativity. Many would fall along the way, but one man and one woman would emerge triumphant among the masses and be crowned Tin Man victors.
