A theatre company has committed to planting a tree grove to help offset carbon emissions from their forthcoming UK tour.
Vamos Theatre, a UK mask theatre company based in Worcester, is working with conservation charity Trees for Life, to seed a grove in the Scottish Highlands.
The grove will include scots pine, willow, birch and alder saplings, and is part of an initiative to rewild the Caledonian Forest.
Rachael Savage, artistic director of Vamos Theatre, said: “This particular project is something we are doing while we work on more long-term sustainability for the company.
“This isn’t a quick solution, we are fully aware trees take up to 20 years to mature but this is a positive springboard for us, we have to start somewhere.”
“This interim move invests in a better future and supports invaluable reforestation in the Scottish Highlands,” she added.
The company’s show, Dead Good, is set to premiere at London’s Jacksons Lane, as part of London International Mime Festival, from January 30 to February 2.
It will then tour the UK, playing at venues including Inverness’ Eden Court and the Studio, Edinburgh.
