About Crafty Burdies

One Yule morning Robin Redbreast sets out to sing for the King, join in his adventures and find out how Robin won the love of wee Jenny Wren. Following the story of the midwinter ‘burdies’, come and build them a wee nest, craft paper birds and join in their wedding celebrations! Participants will enjoy stories, songs and crafting, with a traditional seasonal swing.

Join artists and storytellers Jan Bee Brown and Anne Hunter for a family friendly playday, with an informal performance at 12pm the next day, Sat 15th Feb.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Crafty Burdies are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
