Set & Costume Designer : Celia Perkins


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? 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!


No reserved seating or tickets required, a ‘pay what you feel’ collection will be taken after the show.

Another excellent show and cast. Clever script and songs well delivered.

I’m becoming slightly obsessed with Mikron. I guess this is how one becomes a Mikronite.
