This weekend at Somerset House in London – after a week of high alert air pollution – you can see Mary Poppins fly, just like she did on 6th January, merely a week into 2017, when the UK breached its air pollution limit for the entire year. Tension in the Air, is part of Space to Breathe - a weekend of creative action in response to our city’s air pollution crisis.

Children’s hero Mary Poppins is back. But the air isn’t clear as she makes her descent - she has to wear an air pollution mask to cut through the toxic fumes.
