Talking Birds invite you to take a trail of the unexpected around one of Coventry's historic neighbourhoods, Stoke, tuning in to the stories of Stoke's past and present via headphones, led by an actor-guide.
Follow Ruby as she walks the streets of the past, following her grandmother's voice as she learns about the city they grew up in.
“Elegantly balanced sequence of character portraits and moments in history presented with warmth, humour and perception... Loved it.”
