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.

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

Oh they were gorgeous! We had the perfect weather with just a little bit of wind so they really soared, it was amazing!
