Three people are in a boat wearing pirate hates on the sea. They are reading for a rubber duck.

One Duck Down

7000 rubber ducks. Seven Seas. One big adventure!

Inspired by a true tale (featured on Blue Planet II) that saw 7000 rubber ducks cast adrift in a mighty storm, jam packed with music, clowning and puppetry and with a set and props which are recycled from the lost and found of rubbish both on land and at sea, join us on an ocean clear-up adventure that would make David Attenborough proud.
