Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We want to create a project for young people which encourages them to think about plastic pollution; and the climate emergency in a fun way.

Children’s Performance

In the day time Rime of the Ancient Mariner is an performance for young people; an irreverent deep dive into plastic pollution, ocean waste and the melting polar ice caps encouraging young people to think about the stories behind their waste by meeting an eccentric traveller in a micro-installation. 

Children’s Performances are at 12.30am & 2.30pm Tuesday to Saturday. £8 per child. Maximum 6 children per performance. 45 minutes long

Adults Performance

In the evening everything gets a lot murkier, in a performance for adults join Dr Robert Walton as he recounts his tale of woe stranded on the ice caps of the Arctic. This performance is an intimate immersive experience for one or two adults.
