Gone Cuckoo: Malcolm and Joshua Green
Storytelling performance as part of the renowned Bleddfa Week of Storytelling.
It’s shortly after dawn at RAF Flyingdales and a cuckoo is having a transmitter strapped to his back. A few weeks later he will have flown thousands of miles across Europe and over the Sahara Desert to equatorial Africa.
For millennia the cuckoo’s call has inspired stories, songs and poems: does cuckoo bring the spring, tell our fortunes? Was he the shapeshifter that became a hawk? He certainly fools the reed warblers who feed him as a changeling baby. Now the voice of the cuckoo is fading – where has it gone?
Performed by Malcolm and Joshua Green.
Performance starts 8pm, bar opens 7:30pm.
Tickets £6 (£3 children).
