Ever wanted to travel through time?

If you dare, enter the time machine. Spin the clock and pull the lever, then feel time and space shift all around you as you blast through the continuum and explode into another dimensional plain.

All are welcome along for the ride. Come and discover what secrets await, what important tales are to be told, and what lessons can be learned...

On your exploits through time warp you will be guided by the inventor, Professor Hoogenshplurk through the ever expanding series of The Time is NOW eco-fables.

Alongside Gaia, an eight year old girl from the future and her grumpy metal companion, Robot, the time machine named Oracle will take you through ages gone by to show you the wild places in the world, to share stories that you will not forget.

Time travel provides an excellent opportunity to create a portal into other worlds. The latest historical research and archaeological evidence are researched, whilst myths, legends and stories from the chosen times are used for inspiration. Each interactive journey creates a real experience into extraordinary circumstances, designed to form an accessible vision of another timeline: a window into another world where people can think and act differently.

The lessons of the past have perhaps been accepted by most as gospel. However, an expedition in the time machine may provide a new way of looking at the old stories; to rethink history. Social interaction and collaboration is crucial, as participants take a lead role in the tales, creating their very own time portal into the past. These can then be taken home to act as a memory tool the tale and what conclusions they came to.

Fortuitously, Gaia always arrives in time zones where climate change has affected civilisation before. This underlying theme is apparent in all of the eco-fables. The stories focus on how civilisations come and go, for whatever reason. They ask questions like: What happened to the people there?

How did they react to their changing environment? This is not to blame people for their ignorance or short sightedness, even if they were factors in their downfall, but instead to open it up for discussion. To shine a light on it for people to take note,

and in their own heads make their own decisions and ask their own questions.

What can we learn from these times?

What could we, or would we do differently?
