The Living Wetland Theatre will offer the perfect open-air venue for live and interactive demonstrations and the chance to get up-close to beautiful wetland birds while presenters introduce the species on stage. Stars of the show will include flying pelicans, diving whistling ducks and the elusive bearded tit. The theatre will also offer a platform for live debates with researchers, scientists and TV experts.
