Bird experts fly in
It’s not often you see birds flying in theatres but on Tuesday 13 March at Theatre Royal Winchester, leading bird experts Lloyd and Rose Buck will give you the chance!
Our Life with Birds promises to give audiences a rare opportunity to meet Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, hawks, owls, starlings and many more – all raised and trained with the utmost loving care by bird handlers Lloyd and Rose Buck. Lloyd and Rose are passionate about birds. They train their birds specially for filming on location and in studios and they are without a doubt the foremost experts at tracking birds and in-flight filming.
This truly unique interactive experience is not just for bird loving enthusiasts but also for anyone who relishes the opportunity to see birds rarely seen outside of their wild habitats. This special evening will be led by the Bucks and supported by their film footage as they share their insights, stories and experiences of their world with birds.
Lloyd and Rose often appear on camera themselves and are frequent guests on BBC programmes such as The One Show, Springwatch and Countryfile and have worked with virtually every wildlife and natural history television star including Steve Backshall, Bear Grylls, Michaela Strachan, Chris Packham and Kate Humble. Rose gained much recognition for appearing with Sir David Attenborough while her Geese followed their speedboat for the Sky TV series Conquests of the Sky.
‘The Bucks are remarkable people because when they do imprint, they form a bond they can’t break and it means those swans are with them for life’ Sir David Attenborough.
They have also been involved with over 100 different documentaries, drama productions and feature films such as the BBC’s Poldark, Top Gear and The Hollow Crown.
This show is illustrated with Lloyd and Rose’s own film footage and photography and is suitable for all ages. It promises to be an interactive wildlife experience like no other!
Lloyd and Rose Buck: Our Life With Birds will be at Theatre Royal Winchester on Tuesday 13 March, 7.30pm. Tickets are available from theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk and from the Box Office
