Santa Show is a hoot!

Owl is the star of festive spectacular

The new Christmas show at the National Botanic Garden of Wales has a very special star – Scrooge the Owl
This year’s festive offering from the Botanic Garden has been put together in partnership with Pembrokeshire Falconry and some of their birds play a starring role.
Not least Popeye the European Eagle Owl playing Scrooge, who is top of the bill in this year’s production entitled:  “A Christmas Carowl”, which is being performed in the Garden’s Theatr Botanica on Saturday and Sunday December 10 & 11, and Saturday and Sunday December 17 & 218.
Emma Hill, who runs Pembrokeshire Falconry, said: “We are very excited about this show – and so are the owls! The story is based on the Dicken’s classic that is perfect to get you in to the Christmas spirit : Join Scrooge on his journey as he meets 3 owl ghosts to get him back into the festive mood”
Garden events organiser David Hardy said: “There will be owls flying, carol singing and, we hope, a happy ending! We are extremely grateful to Emma and the Pembrokeshire Falconry team for putting on another show which is a real festive treat for the Garden.”
