Theatre Without Walls

Award winning education and outreach since 2002

Meet the explorers who brought the world to Britain and Ireland. There are many exciting stories about how these amazing plants got to this country. Many of them were discovered by adventurous explorers who risked their lives-sometimes hanging off cliffs, being chased by wild animals and almost freezing to death at the tops of mountains!


Meet David Douglas, Ernest Wilson, Robert Banks and others as they tell you tales and adventures from their travels in their own words gleaned from diaries, letters and other historical documents.  Ideal for outdoor visitor attractions but also suitable for events, museums and galleries with a horticultural connection.
