Poseidon and Amphitrite

Next date: Saturday, 20 July 2019 | 09:45 AM to 02:30 PM


Market goers will be treated to up-close and personal encounters with Amphitrite and Poseidon, the God and Goddess of the sea, as they rove the market throughout July as part of our Plastic Free July promotion. As well as roaming the market, they will also perform extracts from ‘The Poseidon Adventure – turning the tide on plastic pollution’ from their grotto located on the Salamanca lawns.

Poseidon and Amphitrite are played by local performers and artists Andy Vagg and Bryony Geeves who are are passionate about our oceans. Even their costumes are made from recycled materials and plastic waste!

This free activity is part of a Salamanca Market initiative to raise awareness of the effect of waste on our oceans and environment during Plastic Free July.

You can find Poseidon and Amphitrite at the market each Saturday 6, 13, 20 and 27 during July 2019.

Performance times at their grotto on the Salamanca lawns are as follows:

  • 9.45 - 10 am
  • 11.30 - 11.45 am
  • 1.30 - 1.45 pm
  • 2.15 - 2.30 pm

This is a free activity for families.
