Highlights Rural Theatre are back with:

the compelling tale of a bird’s journey

This father and son collaboration of storyteller, Malcolm Green and musician, Joshua Green follows the trail of the Cuckoo to explore the world of this extraordinary creature through stories, songs, music and myths – and a touch of shape shifting. The show will be flying into Allendale to carry audiences along with them on this journey.

It’s just before sunrise at RAF Fylingdales on the North York Moors and a male Cuckoo is having a tiny 4.5g radio transmitter strapped to his back. A few weeks later he will have flown thousands of miles south and 5km high over the Sahara Desert, sending signals back to England as he travels to the Congo.

Tickets (£8, £20 family concession) on sale at Allendale Co-op & Post Office
