Future Floodlands

Outside the Cathedral West Front
Saturday 13 August 2016 11:00 - 17:30

Future Floodlands is a collaboration between artist and boat builder James Tovey, Eastern Angles Theatre Company and Peterborough Environment City Trust. It will take place on the green outside the Cathedral.

This event is organised as part of Peterborough Green Festival.

Future Floodlands will be an imagined world of fenland landscapes, more water than land.

You are invited to become part of Future Floodlands by exploring a submersion tent with visuals by Luke Payn, making a wish, a pledge or a statement on what you want for the future, or taking time to be surrounded by a fen-scape.

Through six pieces of new writing which 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 10-15 minutes long and there will be two performances during the day, at 11.00am-12.45pm and then at 3.45pm-5.30pm.
