We must not only do everything possible to reduce our environmental impact but also inform our audiences about the ongoing climate crisis.
At LAT, we aim to ignite the imaginations of the youngest minds and we want you to join us in our fight against climate change. We all have the power to create change, no matter how big or how small.

With Bertie’s help, we have put together a series of environmental actions you can do at home. For each activity, there is a letter alongside it. When you see the letter on the map, you can colour in one of those sections and move forward on the map.
Once completed, send your map and activity tracker to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it to us the next time you visit us.
Can you help Bertie get back to Little Angel Theatre by completing environmental tasks?
Here’s what we’re doing…
Go green with Bertie!
Bertie is an environmental entertainment and education series, for children aged 3 to 8 on LAT’s YouTube Channel.
Bertie meets a different animal in each episode, and children will learn about different environmental issues and consider how they can take their own steps to help combat climate change.
We have committed ourselves to 52 environmental actions this year
These are all ways in which we are taking action in our organisation each day. We also wanted to bring our audiences along on that journey with us and inspire them to take action in their own lives too.
We have produced work that highlights environmental issues since 2016. Our productions of Junk took children around a recycling centre and Out of This World asked the young people to think about the future of our planet. In 2021, our production of There’s a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom & Other Stories demonstrated how the choices we each make can lead to damaging the environment and the loss of habitat for animals. This production was our first to follow the guidance of the Theatre Green Book for production.
We produce a range of digital work with the Watch, Make, Share, an ethos that encourages you to make using things at home. We encourage the artists we work with to make sustainably and reuse readily available materials in the home.
All new work produced at LAT will aim to fulfil the minimum standards for the Theatre Green book.
We want our sites to be carbon neutral, with the ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2030. We aim to reduce our output by 30% each year.
We are doing this by:
- Using green energy suppliers.
- Reducing our waste to landfills through recycling and composting.
- Switching to LED lighting.
- Improving our buildings insulation.
- Seeking funding to develop our buildings into leaner, greener spaces.
- We will continue to program work that is challenging and educates children around the ongoing climate crisis.
- Within our buildings, we will encourage positive behaviour and use our workshops to inform.
- We will also set an example for all those we work with, cast, creatives and freelancers.
We believe it is our responsibility to reduce our net carbon output and encourage others to do so. We are committed to reducing our carbon emissions in our buildings, productions, workshops and tours.
As a public-facing institution, LAT understands that it has a responsibility to use our position to set a good example, inform and educate young people in their responsibility to the environment.
