Steve Backshall Announces York Barbican Show

Steve Backshall will be bringing the sea to the stage next spring with his new stage show Ocean, promising to make a splash with audiences across the UK!

Heading to York Barbican on 10 April 2022, Steve Backshall’s Ocean is a love letter to the most exciting environment on our planet – and a great way to learn more about what we need to do to save our seas.

Stunts, experiments, props, cutting edge science and big screen footage from his two decades in TV, will all help Steve to bring the icons of the Big Blue to life.

From Great Whites to Great Whales; seals to sardine shoals; Orca to the oddities of the deep: this is a fantastic opportunity for all the family to dive deep into the wonderful world beneath the waves. Steve might even surprise audiences with some guest appearances on stage!

Steve Backshall said: “Its been five years since I last did a tour here in the UK, and we’ll be back bigger and bolder than ever! This time the show is full of stunts, tricks and experiments, looking to bring marine themes to life on stage!”

Tickets will go on pre-sale with Ticketmaster at 8am on Thursday 4 November and on general sale at 10am on Friday 5 November at www.yorkbarbican.co.uk.
