Climate Change Catastrophe!

A new show about climate change, made by children, for grown-ups.

This new production, 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.

Over four weeks children from Hotspur Primary worked with two actors, a theatre company, scientists and engineers from Newcastle University. The result is an exciting journey into the mind of an eight-year-old that will really make you think. 

We performed a work in progress version of the show at Northern Stage on 13th February 2019.

“This way of working seemed to have a lasting impact on the pupils’ knowledge of climate science and engineering”
