Eco Drama presents The Whirlybird

An uplifting theatre show for children aged 3 – 7,
featuring movement, music, bird song, puppetry and
lots of things that spin! Followed by Q&A + Stay & Play


The Whirlybird is a funny, playful and moving piece of visual theatre about learning to fly, encouraging one another and finding joy and inspiration in nature. Created by Scotland’s leading eco-friendly theatre company, with a beautiful music score by award-winning composer Greg Sinclair and set and costume by Claire Halleran, The Whirlybird draws inspiration from the natural world to celebrate diversity and uniqueness and the wonder of flight. A curious creature, ricketie-racketie on ground but in flight, a wildlife spectacle – a blizzard of wings, perfect elliptical twirls, a mass of orange and browns and a cacophony of sound!                                                        

“A delightful show… slips from hilarity to pathos with ease, and keeps the children transfixed. With a colourful, autumnal set festooned with pine cones, a birdhouse, feathers and toadstool and gorgeous wee puppets, both designed by Claire Halleran and featuring magical music from composer Greg Sinclair, it is sure to fly further afield, soar, and keep going.” ★★★★ Lorna Irvine,The List                                            

“This is all about bringing everyday nature centre-stage – before climate change robs tots of the real thing.” Mary Brennan, The Herald         

Tickets: £3/£10 for group of 4 (discount applied at checkout)
