KIT Theatre present a half term interactive storytelling experience, for young people and families from Wandsworth.

The show will help children to turn the ideas and emotions stirred in them by the Climate Crisis into an immersive theatre performance which will takeover BAC. Two weekends of art and activism will reach a grand finale with a Climate Action Arts Festival. 

The Enviro Takeover uses the expertise of Creative Climate Leader Toby Peach to ensure that participating young people are offered tools and creative techniques which allow them to build resilience when faced with climate anxiety. It is crucial for these same children to learn about the difference that individual actions can make and this project will offer participants agency through creativity.

Mon 24 – Fri 28 October – online and in-person creative workshops in Wandsworth, across the half term week 

Sat 29 & Sun 30 October – Children’s artistic creations come to fruition as the Climate Action Arts Festival takes over BAC!

PAY WHAT YOU CAN

We believe in making our shows accessible to as many people as possible.

We offer tickets on a Pay What You Can basis for the majority of performances throughout the year. Tickets usually start at £6, and we have recommended pricing to help you to choose a price that works for you.

We know that ticket price is a huge barrier for some, and the Pay What You Can model offers people who can afford to pay the recommended price or more the chance to support others who can’t.
