SSOHC Sprites bringing fun to Hertford this Christmas


Through the Portal the SSOHC Sprites come, 

To bring to Hertford some magical fun,

Ideas of games for all to play,

To make this Christmas a special day.


The Secret Society of Hertford Crafters has produced an amazing festive yarnbomb in Hertford Town to celebrate Christmas.




The Society is bringing fun and games to Hertford with 82 cheeky SSOHC Sprites playing traditional games throughout the town:

  • Cards

  • Dominoes

  • Elf on a Shelf

  • Hide & Seek

  • Jenga

  • Kerplunk

  • Monopoly

  • Noughts & Crosses

  • Operation

  • Pin the tail on Rudoph

  • Railway Set

  • Snakes & Ladders

  • Snowball Fun

  • Tiddlywinks

  • Twister



The one-metre-tall SSOHC Sprites are visiting us from Sprite World, magically appearing in Hertford though the portal in the town’s Salisbury Square. Arriving through the Vortex, packages from Sprite World get sorted in the Sprite World Warehouse, then onto the Office to be addressed and stamped, to get ready for dispatch from the Logistics Department.


The SSOHC Sprites are really busy in the Portal, working out which games are to go where. On the wall of the Sprite Office, there is a list of where each game is destined to go in Hertford. This list is also available via the SSOHC website and social media. All the fun and games are within walking distance of Salisbury Square, albeit it in different directions!


SSOHC Sprites are brilliant at organising and having fun, but definitely need to improve their spelling! They have some wonderful Sprite-sized equipment to help them at the Portal, including a fork lift truck and a bicycle.


There are 15 super-scale games across Hertford Town, each being enjoyed by wonderfully coloured woolly SSOHC Sprites.


Each cheeky SSOHC Sprite has given themself a festive name, including: Fruit Cake, Bucks Fizz, Satsuma, Sparkle, Mulled Wine, Brussel Sprout, Frosty, Quality Street and Poinsettia. 

Don’t forget to visit our Christmas stall which will be open in Salisbury Square – Hertford every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from Friday 2nd December – Monday 19th December. We look forward to seeing you there.



Our chosen charity this year is Mudlarks Community Garden, registered charity number 1132403
