The Good Scout

The Good Scout

Above the Stag · 09 OCT - 02 NOV

Inspired by true events: a story of espionage, Scout’s honour and forbidden love.


In the 1930s, Baden-Powell and Von Ribbentrop, Hitler’s ambassador, decreed that British boy scouts and Hitler Youth should learn from one another.

In Bassington, England, the local troop play host to a cycling party of Hitlerjugend – but are the German boys cyclists or “spyclists”? For Will and Jacob, two Rover Scouts on the cusp of manhood, it is a visit that will change their lives forever.
