Submerge yourself in a Future Floodland of Fen, words and inspiration

Community & Education
Future Floodlands is a collaboration between artist and boat builder James Tovey, Eastern Angles Theatre Co and Peterborough Environment City Trust.

This compelling installation will be part of the Green Festival on the 13th of August and Future Floodlands will be an imagined world situated within Peterborough Cathedral grounds. Enter a space of fenland landscapes, more water than land, submerged worlds and interact with this unique space that will ask what a flooded world may be like?

Become part of Future Floodlands on the day through exploring a submersion tent with visuals by Luke Payn. Make a wish, a pledge or a statement on what you want for the future. Take time to be surrounded by the nature of  a fen-scape that surrounds us.

Also experience six pieces of new writing, that also answer and provoke reactions about or engage with the same question of what a Future Floodland would be like. Meet characters like Hereward the Wake and see Peterborough in the next century.

Each play is 10-15mins long and there will be two performances of these on the day at 11am-12.30pm and then at 3.45pm-5.15pm.

Running order for the performances:

Somewhere Else by William Alderson
Beside The Seaside by Liv Jones
In The Wake Of The Flood by Elaine Ewart
Spilling Convention by Clare Currie
Losing It by Vikki Touzel
On Such A Full Sea by Hilary Spiers

All performances are FREE and will be outside, so please bring a blanket, an extra cushion and even a picnic!
