10 things a Swallow couldn’t leave home without

Are there days when you’ve been caught short without an umbrella, or you can’t find those keys in the bottom of your bag? Not for a Swallow! The highly organised, sensible and utterly lovable Walker children from our production of Swallows and Amazons are always prepared for any occasion. They would never be seen without these:

1. A useful pen knife

For any foreseeable occasion.

2. A barometer

With no smartphones this is an essential weather predicting device.

…I mean, who doesn’t know how to make a paper Swallow?

5. Exceptional knowledge of navigating the stars.

Because who needs Google Maps when you have the stars.

6. 6 eggs, individually wrapped for fear of smashing

It just makes sense.

7. This map of uncharted territories

8. A copy of this essential reference book

You’re not a true Swallow until you know how to tie a Butterfly Coil.

9. This fashionable swimwear

Speedos are so last year.

10. Their determination to always do the right thing.
