Legendary Pirates Flotsam and Jetsam are no ordinary buccaneers of folklore; they are the founding members of the PPPI; Plastic Plundering Pirates Initiative. 

 

Aboard the great Polymer Poseidon; the most pliable ship on the high seas, constructed from mere water bottles, Flotty and Jetty are on a quest to boldly go where no Pirate has gone before…The Great Pacific Trash Vortex.

 

An interactive outdoor experience with the odd movie reference for all the family about recycling, with a pirate twist.

Tea time with Hatter and Hare!

Did you get your invitation? The table is laid , the cake in the oven and the tea brewing. Hatter and Hare are ready for their tea party, but wait, where are all the guests?

The Mad Hatter and March Hare take audiences on an adventure through Wonderland to meet some of everyone's favourite characters in this fun outdoor performance for all. 


Audiences take their seat on their own personal picnic blanket as Hatter and Hare take the stage. An original piece using excerpts from the traditional script with a twist. Games, competitions, audience interaction and a little bit of silliness for all the family.
