The Storm Officer
Suitable for ages 12+
Admission free, but please book in advance with the Box Office on 0115 846 7777
Stories of wild floods, Nottinghamshire whirlwinds, fire-drakes, the Thames frozen over, Sir Cloudesley Shovell and Ann the local poet, with her many-coloured notebooks.
Inspired by the extreme weather database (TEMPEST), The Storm Officer is a rich journey, and an entertainment, which weaves together story, songs, strange characters, a thousand years of extreme weather and real experiences from the Cumbrian floods of December 2015.
The performance has been specially commissioned by Georgina Endfield and Lucy Veale as part of their 'Weather Extremes' exhibition at the Weston Gallery.
