“New Adventures is thrilled to be the first touring company to be working in partnership with Julie’s Bicycle on a Creative Green Touring certification. As the UK’s biggest and busiest touring Dance company, we visit theatres across the world and travel to very picturesque settings. I believe that it’s important to conserve the natural beauty around us and it is something that we’re very passionate about. We hope that our Green Adventure with Julie’s Bicycle will help us to spread the word to our wonderful presenting venues and audiences around the globe about how to lead more sustainable lifestyles, so that generations to come can continue to enjoy all that our planet has to offer.”

“New Adventures is delighted to be awarded the Creative Green Pioneer award in recognition of our work with Julie’s Bicycle over the past 18 months. We are now very excited to see what we can achieve in the future, particularly on our UK tour of Swan Lake.”
