About the Walkabout
With a new born chick and an egg to hatch, Reggie and Ruby Robin are on a Quest for a Nest, and in this instance, a swinging nest! To keep themselves as warm as possible, they break into a boogie wherever they go, propelled by Christmas magic and the greatest seasonal music (expect plenty of festive jazz and old time crooners!). They spread as much Christmas cheer as they can with their incredibly fancy footwork and joy of jiving. You may even get to join in with the actions of the Birdy Song (go on you know you want to!)
What to expect
This duo mingles with the Christmassy crowds and have a trolley to transport the props and on board sound system. They search for a warm place to put their egg, perhaps an anorak hood, woolly hat, extra-large glove or even an unused jumper of any kind and encourage lucky passers-by to give each other a Christmas kiss under their giant mistletoe which hangs from an extendable pole. As a finale to these short spots they perform their swing dance routine to the festive tune “Red Red Robin” and get the audience to join in with the Birdy Song.
