The show promises to make a splash with north-east audiences on April 5, 2022.

Ocean is a love letter to the most exciting environment on the planet and a great way to learn more about what humanity need to do to save the 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.

Aberdeen Performing Arts Director of Programming and Creative Projects, Ben Torrie, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from one of the most popular wildlife presenters on television on such an endlessly fascinating subject, and in a really engaging way.”

Steve Backshall said: “It’s 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”
