An uplifting theatre show for children aged 3-7, featuring movement, music, bird song, puppetry and lots of things that spin!

In a cosy nest, two birds look skyward and get ready for their maiden flight. While flying comes easy for Bird, Whirlybird just can’t get the hang of it. After many failed attempts, inspiration is found in a very special flying seed.

The Whirlybird is a funny, playful and moving piece of 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 delightful show… slips from hilarity to pathos with ease, and keeps the children transfixed.”     Lorna Irvine, The List
