The People’s Assembly

All ages

A dragon is coming to Plymouth!
What do we do?

Calling all people of Plymouth. On Saturday 14  August 2021, a dragon will be on our streets. The People’s Assembly has been created to respond to this extraordinary event. That same evening, we will come together as a city to figure out what it means, why it’s here, and what we should do.This needs all of us urgently – including you!
Come join us as we hear from dragon experts and other surprise guests, share ideas and make a plan together.
What questions do we need answers to? What excites you? What worries you? And what should we do?
Before we leave the room, a proposal must be made. This people led process will learn what the city thinks, deliberate what to do and form our response. Be part of the circle of Plymouth residents who make up The People’s Assembly and show that we as a city can do this together. Contribute as much or as little as you want, in person or online, at what promises to be a once in a lifetime event.
We should give it somewhere to eat and sleep.
What makes it angry? We don’t want an angry dragon!
We should make the dragon feel as welcome as possible, how we act now shows who we are
Do you think it listens to Katy Perry too?
Dragons are frightening – this is a big problem for our city
What if she just wants to be free?

Pay What You Decide!
This show is a Pay What You Decide event, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows, more often.
Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash, card or via our website.
