Hold onto your snorkels, folks, because Steve Backshall’s new stage show, “Ocean,” is making waves across the UK! With his infectious enthusiasm and unparalleled knowledge of the deep blue, Backshall takes audiences on a thrilling underwater adventure like no other.

As a self-proclaimed fan of Backshall, my eight-year-old son, Charlie, was on cloud nine throughout the entire show. From the moment the lights dimmed, Steve had us hooked, mesmerized by his larger-than-life personality and captivating storytelling.

Giant screen and live animals bring ocean alive.

The stage comes alive with a colossal screen showcasing jaw-dropping footage of Steve’s exhilarating encounters with majestic sharks, playful dolphins, and awe-inspiring whales. It’s the closest you’ll get to swimming alongside these incredible creatures without getting wet! The on-stage science experiments, props, stunts, and tricks add an extra layer of excitement, making it an interactive experience that had both kids and adults on the edge of their seats.

But the real showstoppers? Life-size scale ocean giants that make guest appearances on stage! Steve knows just how difficult it is to comprehend the size and majesty of these animals truly, so he brings them to life right before our eyes. Trust me when I say, seeing these giants up close left us in absolute awe.
