Bring a picnic and enjoy this free show, courtesy of our friends Mind the Gap. Fun and poignant, Birdie is a show with beautiful design and choreography where actors fight climate change.

Birdie is a beautiful show featuring three professional actors with learning disabilities, blending intricate choreography, original music, and captivating object manipulation to tell a powerful story about climate change. Homie, the main character, travels in an incredible self-contained mobile home. They are determined to make a difference in the face of the daunting climate crisis.

Homie meets Birdie, a new friend struggling to navigate a world filled with plastics and pollution. With Homie’s help they embark on a journey towards freedom and hope, inspiring positive action and encouraging people to stand up for what’s right.

Performances at 11.30am and 1.30pm.
