Drowning under a crushing mass of plastic, the Keeper of the Waterways awakens and rises up.

It’s time for change. Highly Sprung’s CastAway is a stunning outdoor performance that explores the impact of today’s throwaway society on our waterways. Featuring a unique gyroscopic flying machine, it presents a brand new approach to aerial theatre. The all-female cast immerses audiences in an underwater world where performers dive, twist and float over 26 feet in the air to delight, inspire and captivate people of all ages.



Clock Tower is a wide open space in the heart of the city centre, with dropped kerb access available. If you have any concerns over access or need to request some additional provisions to assist you in attending this performance please contact
