Actors from Todos Teatro will use physical theatre and puppetry to perform Turtles Don't Like Plastic at the Round Tower on Saturday and Sunday.

The hour-long show is inspired by the Pacific trash vortex – a vast patch of plastic pollution in the north Pacific.

It will be followed by a workshop where children can use recycled materials to make their own sea creature puppet.
