Family Theatre for ages 5+ and their families. Tickets £3 for library members or £6 for non-library members.
Come and join our two excavators as they scuttle through the muck finding treasures hidden amongst a world of rubbish. A magical world where, at the touch of a puppeteer’s hand, the contents of a bin bag can transform before your eyes.
Recycled Rubbish explores themes of recycling, the environment, and the value of friendships. It was inspired by Theatre-Rites’ successful show Rubbish which toured the UK and was featured on Blue Peter.
