About the Show

Recycled Rubbish is now out on its third tour.  This year we travel to Thailand to be part of BICT Bangkok's first ever children's theatre festival, before returning to the UK to visit schools in London and Luton, libraries as part of Spot On Lancashire, the Beverley and Boo Puppet Festivals and Dublin's Festival of Curiosity.

Come and join our two excavators as they scuttle through the muck finding treasures hidden amongst a world of rubbish. A magical world where, at the touch of a puppeteer's hand, the contents of a bin bag can transform before your eyes.

It's a beautiful, silly and inventive world.

The creation of Recycled Rubbish was inspired by our hugely successful show Rubbish, which toured the UK and was featured on Blue Peter. 

SUITABLE FOR KEY STAGES 1 & 2

Recycled Rubbish 2016

Recycled Rubbish finished its third tour this summer.  Our wonderful cast, crew and puppets visited Bangkok, Beverley, Dublin, Eccleston, London, Luton and Rossendale.  

We look forward to sharing our love of rubbish, recycling and upcycling again, and hopefully to as interesting a geographical spread of venues. 

Recycled Rubbish arrives in Bangkok

Our lovely Recycled Rubbish team are all in Thailand, preparing for BICT (Bangkok International Children's Festival).  This is Thailand's first ever theatre festival created for children and we are delighted to be part of the inaugural season.  This morning the company, together with BICT's Artistic Director Adjjima Na Patalung appeared on Breakfast TV - and they brought Glove Man with them!
