We will be holding our AGM at 7.30 on June 10 at HG Wells Conference and Events centre. Map here. No need to book in advance and entrance is free.
After a brief AGM George Marshall will be presenting his show
-a fast moving, highly entertaining one man show based on his acclaimed book, Carbon Detox.
He will challenge your assumptions and help you to find fresh ways to deal with climate change.
Why is climate change often so boring
Why do polar bears leave us cold
How have plastic bags became a fetish
How can a spin in a Ferrari fit into a low carbon future
Why can smokers teach us anything we need to know
What is it like to ride the climate roller coaster
How can we find joy and thrive in a climate change world
….and not a graph in sight!
Carbon Detox argues that we must stop thinking about ‘saving the planet’ and ‘giving things up’. Instead let’s adopt a light-carbon lifestyle because it is the only smart, fun, healthy and modern way to live in the 21st century.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT PREVIOUS SHOWS
Fantastic show. If you are scared this will turn it all around.
Lizzie Gillett, Film producer, McLibel: Two Worlds Collide.
Al Gore and Woody Allen wrapped in one…George Marshall has created the world’s first stand-up climate change routine. It is hilarious, and really challenged me to change the way I thought.
Roman Krznaric, The Oxford Muse
Witty, pithy, engaging and generous. George doesn’t tell you off, he doesn’t lecture you, he makes you want to do something about climate change. Go and hear him if you can. Excellent!
