Amazing Magpie Stilt Walkers.

One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl, four for a boy.
Five for silver, six for gold, seven for a secret never to be told.
Magpies have always had a place in British folklore and the nursery rhymes sung
in the school playground. It is considered unlucky to see one
Magpie…hence…”Good morning Mr Magpie, hows the wife?”, and lucky, to see two.

Inspired by the faded decadence of the 1920s, the novels “The Great Gatsby” by F.
Scott Fitzgerald and “Brideshead Revisited” by Evelyn Waugh, the monochromic
beauty of these unusual looking birds, which symbolise a type of “Englishness”.
Hazy days, long evenings, cricket and black tie balls.

The magpies walk around your event, silent and mysterious, beware your glittery
possessions, as they have a reputation for stealing!

Also available as a ground based walkabout act.
