Forget Britain’s Got Talent.
This Easter Legoland has got parrots. To celebrate the launch of its new Pirate Shores area, Legoland is establishing the post of Parrot in Residence.
It is calling on parrot owners around the UK to nominate their plumed pets for the role. Parrot personalities from across the country will meet and greet guests during the Easter holidays, when Pirate Shores officially opens.
But to make it there, they will first need to attend an interview with the Legoland Windsor Resort team.
Liz Edwards from Legoland said: “We’re hoping to see some really talented birds that ‘shiver our timbers’ and get us in the pirate spirit.
"All pet owners need to do is submit pictures of their parrots to us with 100 words on what makes them the ultimate Pirate Parrot. We’ll then whittle down to a shortlist who we will invite to come and 'interview' for the job.”
Nominations should be sent to Parrot In Residence, The Legoland Windsor Resort, Winkfield Road, Windsor, SL4 4AY, by Tuesday, March 6 and a shortlist will be decided by Thursday, March 8 with auditions taking place soon afterwards.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
