Vision  
The Green Roadshow is the UK's only mobile Eco-centre.

It is a unique educational experience that combines workshops, hands-on activities, displays and exhibitions with fun and entertainment. Being a completely self-contained unit, it can easily fit into a large established show or form the focus of a smaller event.

Our aim is to help people understand the problems facing the ecosystem and give them some practical advice on how they can change their lives to become part of the solution whilst having a positive, exciting experience, too.

The Green Roadshow is based around the Croissant Neuf Circus.

Luke Jugglestruck
Through the use of highly skilled juggling and diabolic routines, Mr. Jugglestruck demonstrates the dangers of nuclear power and radioactivity, then explains the benefits of safe and renewable energy sources.

Chuck Lee's Environmental Extravaganza
Through an environmental journey of pantomime proportions, Chuck and his friends deliver comedy, magic and spectacular skills whilst highlighting pollution solutions like 'Ozone' the hottest new dance band. This madcap misadventure into the world of global warming is a 'seriously funny' educational show.

The 'Answer To Everything' Machine
Professor Des Kay presents his fantastic machine that stands over 12ft high and is made entirely out of waste materials and 'rubbish'. This pedal powered marvel assists Des in explaining to us all how we can help to save the planet by joining the 'Save The World' club.

Broccoli and Sprouts Environmental Clown Show
A Feast of traditional slapstick fun featuring Hugh (Human Being!) and Mother Nature battling it out for control of the earth.

The show contains juggling, clowning, unicycling, music and lots of laughs whilst Mother Nature is teaching Hugh how to look after the planet, highlighting issues such as ozone depletion, deforestation, pollution, recycling and endangered species. The show ends in an environmental rap with the two characters managing to live in harmony.
