This Christmas season RSPB NI is inviting families to get in the festive spirit and celebrate their inner robin at the brand-new Robin Robin themed adventure trail at Belfast’s Window on Wildlife!
Robin Robin, is Aardman’s new festive stop-motion musical tale about a young robin trying to fit in, which debuted on Netflix on 24 November. RSPB has partnered to host bespoke fun-filled adventure trail, which will allow the whole family to experience the festive joy of Robin Robin, all while spending time in the great outdoors.
Running from 24 November to 10 January, young adventurers will learn to sing like a robin, find their very own superpower and use all their senses to connect with the robin within. Families taking part can also listen to the exclusive audio trail voiced by Bronte Carmichael, the voice actor for Robin Robin. An optional activity booklet can help children complete all the challenges and be rewarded with a certificate for completing the trail and becoming a brilliant robin.
Claire Barnett, RSPB NI Area Manager, said: “We are so excited to be working with Aardman and Netflix to celebrate the festive magic of the robin with families across the UK. They’re one of the UK’s most beloved birds and a true Christmas icon. Our new trail at Belfast’s Window on Wildlife will immerse families in the Robin Robin story and bring it to life amongst nature. We hope the film and our adventure trails can inspire everyone to discover robins and other wildlife near them and get outside in nature. You can also learn how to help robins and other wildlife at home this winter.”
Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, co-creators and directors of Robin Robin, say: “It’s a dream come true to be partnering with the RSPB, bringing our Robin into their wonderful reserves and helping families connect with the wildlife around them. The story of Robin Robin plays with a misunderstanding between ‘the Who-mens’ and birds and we’re thrilled to support any effort that will help bring our two worlds closer together.”
There’s no need to book ahead for the trail just drop by during opening hours, normal admission charges apply, and activity packs are £3 each. Visit the Belfast’s Window on Wildlife website rspb.org.uk/BelfastWOW for full facility details and opening times.
