Twitchers by Mikron Theatre Company

Thursday 5th October 7:30 pm

A musical comedy play performed by the Mikron travelling theatre company. Nest(le) down with Mikron in this flight through birdwatching history, feathered with birdsong and laughter. You’ll be giggling from heron in and you won’t ‘egret coming! Tickets £15, £7.50 under 18.

Springwatch is coming to RSPB Shrikewing nature reserve. Jess, the Reserve Warden, can’t wait to show the world this special place, with its amazing wildlife and incredible birds. But Shrikewing is not an island. From pollution and vandals to an overzealous mayor, Jess is starting to feel that protecting birds from human interference might just be impossible.

As we meet raucous rooks, booming bitterns and plenty of tits we realise the birds of Shrikewing are its real stars. Can Jess take inspiration from the RSPB’s tenacious female founders and draw on its history of campaigning to save them? Can she find her own voice to raise a rallying cry for nature?

We are pleased to once again welcome the talented travelling theatre company Mikron to Threlkeld,  with this new production covering the story of birdwatching history and the RSPB. Thursday 5th October, 7:30pm. Bar and Box Office from 6:45pm. Tickets £15, (£7.50 under 18) on-line here or from the Coffee Shop or village PO.
