You’re Rubbish!

“I thought the idea and its implementation was great. The two actors were so natural children completely immersed themselves in the show and gained a huge amount of information without realising it. Come again!”
- Tewkesbury Church of England School.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the show and are constantly asking us to recycle!”
- Hertford Heath School, Herts

What's it about?

How much rubbish do we throw away – Landfill Sites – Reusing – Recycling – Reducing - Composting.

What's it like?

This show is one of our series of acclaimed comedy lectures.

Imagine Laurel and Hardy trying to present a serious scientific lecture and you can probably imagine what will happen.

Children are shown how much rubbish they throw away each year – and how that adds up everyone in the UK throwing away billions of bags of rubbish.

Children are encouraged to lead creative discussions about how they could reduce the number of things they throw away – by reusing, recycling and composting.

By using a visual and entertaining style, children can really get to grips with any unfamiliar concepts. This show covers a number of National Curriculum topics for science, geography and English.
