What’s big, smelly and floats on the water? A big, smelly rubbish island!

That’s where we find Knick, endlessly sorting through all our crud and clinker. He has been there for so long he has forgotten how to smile and has started talking to a dummy he has made. Now meet Doo Dad, he’s here to help, but Knick doesn’t want any!

Doo Dad needs you to show Knick why having friends is so important and all the reasons to be cheerful.

It’s an interactive show and you get to join in with the rubbish storm, the crying chorus, and with making bubbly fire and ha-ha food. We’ll have great fun as we transform our trash into amazing new toys and reboot your recycling routine into something special. Ages 3+.
