    Serbian Highflyer

    Now that you are a grown Pigeon, we know you want to get out and mingle.

    We know how bad those social media apps are for pigeons, so we're offering the opportunity to meet in person. You are formally invited to our pigeon-themed wrap party (TBD in central London) to meet other like-minds. We do insist you wear your pigeon paraphernalia to the party.

    And for those who can't make the party (and even for those who can), we don't want you to feel left out. We have printed our official Pigeons Film poster, and will send it out to you.

    Along with the French Mondain Pigeon rewards (above)

    Includes:
    • Official Pigeons Poster (A4)
    • Invite to Official, VIP, Pigeon-themed Wrap Party
