York Climate Week

It was Climate Week last week, and to mark the occasion, anyone who was anyone in York  performed – or attended a performance of – Compost! the (mini-)Musical, and learnt how to combat global warming through worm power!

Rachel Simpson of York Rotters and I have been busy flitting to schools and Brownie groups across York over the past couple of weeks to teach them my eco-musical Compost! the (mini-)Musical, and we’ve been very  impressed with the fabulous performances the children have given.

The pupils of Hempland and Knavesmire Primary Schools even included my French composting song in their show,  and performed it as a round!

The pupils of Fishergate Primary School performed the musical in public in the centre of York on Friday, to rapturous applause, and a great write-up in The Press.

And Copmanthorpe Brownies gave a great – girls only – performance too.

Thank you to all the teachers, Brownie leaders, pupils and Brownies who have welcomed Rachel and me over the past couple of weeks, and huge congratulations to all the children on their performances.
