The Storm Officer - tour dates July/ October 2018

Wild storms, hurricanes and extreme flooding, The Storm Officer tells the tale of one town’s struggle when faced with the realities of extreme weather and the impact of climate change. Inspired by real-life stories of Storm Desmond (2015), and tales of extreme, bizarre and dramatic weather events from the last thousand years, The Storm Officer invites you on a journey of discovery. Exploring what it means to still call somewhere home in the face of adversity.

Funny, touching and bold, The Storm Officer features stories of courage and bravery, woven with original live music and song.

So when sun shines, we watch the planes

And finest grapes hang off the vine,

So let’s drink on, and when it rains

We’ll measure rain as pints of wine…
