A new show about climate change. Made by kids, for grown-ups.

Winner of the Green Gown Award for Benefiting Society

We were so pleased to have the opportunity to ‘Climate Change Catastrophe!’ at COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.

This new show will give you inspiring perspectives on one of the biggest challenges of our time – climate change. It’s all about what children think about climate change – their hopes, fears and ideas for the future. 

Cap-a-Pie theatre company worked with hundreds of children from across the North of England as well as scientists and engineers at Newcastle University to make Climate Change Catastrophe! Everything you see in the show is directly inspired by the young people who helped to create it.

Join our mailing list to find out when the show is next available to watch.
