The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust invites you to a FREE afternoon of theatre, dance and crafts with an environmental theme.

Louise White

Thanks to Arts Council England funding and support from the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, #WilderFuture comes to Spalding for a showcase of theatre, dance and crafts with the environment at its heart.

Members of the public and schools are invited to join us for an afternoon of free activities, including performances from Louise White Theatrician and Laura Ryder & Co.

We'll be diving under the sea with Louise White as she performs 'Washed Up', taking us on a journey below the waves with friend Reggie the Turtle in the plastic soup we have created. We'll then be replacing our flippers and taking to the air as we join Laura Ryder & Co for 'The Bee Project', learning all about the importance of honeybees and their decline through storytelling and dance.

Throughout the day there will also be chance to have a go at some nature crafts for all ages exploring the wildlife of Lincolnshire and why you should #LoveLincsPlants. Plus of course, the opportunity to find out more about the work of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and what careers may lay ahead for the next generation in recovering nature supporting a #WilderLincolnshire.

Louise White, Artistic Director says:
"I've loved working with Lincs Wildlife Trust over the last 2 years creating and developing Washed Up. It's been fabulous to have their support and to make a show about a subject that means so much to me. I'm thrilled we're able to make this event happen and to be performing alongside Laura Ryder & Co."

Laura Ryder, Lead Artist of Laura Ryder & Co. says:
“It’s really great to be involved in this project with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. As a company we are excited by the idea of using theatre as a form of activism and this event feels like an important collaboration and opportunity to make change.”

Tammy Smalley, Head of Conservation at Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust says:
“This is an exciting chance to bring together arts and conservation with the collective aim of inspiring people to not only protect nature but to kick start nature’s recovery.”
