Myth and science meet in this compelling tale of an iconic bird’s journey – told through story and song by Malcolm and Joshua Green.

For thousands of years, the Cuckoo has been part of folklore and its call present in songs, poems and stories. But now the bird is disappearing in England and we may soon stop hearing that iconic “Cuc-coo”. Father and son duo, Malcolm Green (storyteller) and Joshua Green (musician) are collaborating to tell the Cuckoo’s tale…

And with a wry trickster smile will take you on a compelling journey, weaving together the rhythms, stories and songs of this extraordinary creature and the lands over which it travels. Join us to discover the secrets of his voyage to bring us the spring.
