Harbingers of long summer days, our swallows paint the skies with colour, movement and the sweet sound of birdsong.

A Sweep of Swallows is a set of beautiful silk kite walkabout puppets, which can be performed singly, in pairs or ideally as a trio. Catching the wind, they create a beautiful aerial picture, bringing joy to events and height and colour to parades.

Safe & Accessible

This act, along with every other act on our website, is expert in adapting to a variety of performance settings, including during the constrictions of the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic.

The performances will be tailored to the event and location to ensure that all interactions are socially distanced without compromising the joy and spectacle.

Alison and Frances were lovely and really professional. We were delighted with the Swallows and they certainly grabbed attention!
