The Pollutos

A fun-filled family adventure about the environment

“Amazing energy, props and music!”
KS1 teacher, Hoo St Werburgh Primary School

“The Pollutos captures the magic of performance and weaves a wonderfully modern story that focuses on community, responsibility and a strong
sense of shared belonging.”

“A wonderful, innovative production for both young and old alike. We really enjoyed our time, and the workshop at the end was an added bonus.
Many thanks for a fantastic time!”
Selling Village Hall

Welcome to the world of the Polluto family who throw all their rubbish into the garden and never recycle. One day, their rubbish piles so high that they can no longer leave their house. As the rubbish piles higher and higher, will they ever find their way out? Using puppetry and live music, we invite you for a fun and playful adventure that explores the environment and our relationship to it.
