Event description

Description

With Tom Cadwallendar, Malcolm Green and Joshua Green

For millennia, the cuckoo’s call has inspired countless songs, stories and poems. Does he bring the spring? Does he tell our fortunes? Was he the shapeshifter that became a hawk? Now the voice of the cuckoo is fading, where has he gone?

Join us for a short talk on Cuckoo ecology by BTO ornithologist, Tom Cadwallender, before enjoying an extra special performance from father and son, Malcolm and Joshua Green, who will use story and song to tell a compelling tale of an iconic bird’s journey.

Gone Cuckoo is the enchanting and captivating hour-long tale of this iconic bird’s journey - told through story and song - a tour de force of environmental art. ‘Gone Cuckoo mixes Josh's enchanting voice, hilarious acting and wonderfully improvised music making with Malcolm’s spellbinding gift for telling tales. Their shared story blends wonder, humour and joy with a profoundly serious message about the loss of British wildlife. Above all Gone Cuckoo is a love song to the most celebrated bird of the northern summer.’ - Mark Cocker (author of Crow Country).
