Cuckoo Clock workshop

May 28 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

We’ll help you design and make a unique Cuckoo Clock, with your own choice of clock face, pendulums and decorations.

Did you know that Wicken Fen is one of just a handful of sites in the South of England that Cuckoos visit each summer? Take a stroll around the Fen in May and you will probably hear their distinctive call. Females lay just one egg in the nest of an unfortunate Reed Warbler, then take no further part in brooding or feeding their chick.

Note that the finished clocks will be for decorative purposes and will not include a working clock mechanism.





£7 per clock model – Booking essential, see weblink above for link to booking website or call 0344 249 1895 (parking charges also apply for non-members)
