Flying the Nest 29th July – Book now!

Friday 29th July 2016

An interactive show introducing young explorers to the fun world of birding! 

Flying The Nest is a show inspired by British birds. In true Handmade Theatre style this piece is an interactive theatrical experience designed with and for children and families.

The audience are invited to sit in their very own bird nests and  enrol in hatchling college and learn all about native birds and how to be a good birder.

Filled with a fantastic mix of music, drama, facts and fun, this humorous show brings to life native bird characters in a new and engaging way.

Meet on Bingley Island Local Nature Reserve which will be signed from Toddler’s Cove Car Park. Each child will be given a Bingley Island ‘bird bingo’ spotter sheet so they can explore after the performance!

Very limited spaces. – for general information about the theatre company
