Torrs Hydro will be featured as an example of a 'hero' on the Gearshift Theatre website after professional storyteller Tim Padmore visited in April as part of his “Giants” tour. Tim was pedalling from Liverpool to Hull to raise awareness of climate change. Although primarily aimed at children (Tim is an ex-teacher), many in his audiences were well past school age and the multi-level stories can be appreciated by all ages. Read his blog from the tour, as well as synopses of the Giants stories featured, at Gearshift Theatre.
