The Fancy at Project Pigeon
Project Pigeon presents The Fancy, possibly the first ever play set at a pigeon loft, written by Mandy Ross and directed by Kim Charnock from RoguePlay Theatre. The Fancy is based on material in the Birmingham Pigeon Archive and explores the lives, relationships and experiences of pigeon fanciers.

Mandy Ross will run a drop-in writing workshop, open to both writers and non-writers.
- 17:00 – 18:00
Launch of Pigeon Talk: Tales from The Fancy – a book which brings together some of the research, documents and photographs from The Birmingham Pigeon Archive project.
