Titchwell Marsh joins up with Netflix for Robin Robin adventure trail
The RSPB is partnering with Netflix and Aardman on Robin Robin, a half-hour stop-motion festive story for the whole family, debuting on Netflix, Wednesday, November 24.
Families are invited to join adventure trails at Titchwell Marsh nature reserve, one of more than 30 RSPB reserves around the UK running family trails to help everyone be their best robin.
Trails will include an exclusive Robin Robin and RSPB activity pack with a trail booklet, robin-related activities, a bird food recipe card, and much more.
Aardman are the makers of Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and Chicken Run amongst other stop-motion hit movies and Robin Robin is its new festive musical tale about a young robin redbreast trying to fit in.
These fun-filled trails will allow the whole family to experience the festive joy of Robin Robin, all while spending time in the great outdoors.
Carrie Carey, visitor experience manager at Titchwell Marsh, said: “We are so excited to be working with Aardman and Netflix to celebrate the festive magic of the robin with families at RSPB nature reserves in Norfolk.
"They’re one of the UK’s most beloved birds and a true Christmas icon. Our new trails will immerse families in the Robin Robin story and bring it to life in our reserve’s special greenspaces.
"We hope the film and our adventure trails can inspire everyone to discover robins and the other wildlife that they share their homes with, and to enjoy exploring nature.
"Our Robin Robin activity pack also includes activities and ideas on how you can help robins and other wildlife at home this winter."
Running until Monday, January 10, young adventurers will learn to sing like a robin, find their very own superpower, and use all their senses to connect with their robin within.
An activity booklet will help children complete all the challenges and be rewarded with a certificate for completing the trail and becoming a brilliant robin.
Audio trails will also be available at both RSPB nature reserves in Norfolk, voiced by Bronte Carmichael, the voice actor for Robin Robin. Other activities on offer at Strumpshaw Fen include nest building and robin-themed crafts.
The sites will be offering Robin Robin-themed food and drink so adventurers can refuel in style.
The RSPB shop at Titchwell Marsh will also have Robin Robin books, an exclusive pin badge and products on offer to help families look after robins and other wildlife at home this winter.
Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, co-creators and directors of Robin Robin, said: "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."
