Chris Packham - Pictures from the Edge of the World

Sunday 23 February, 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Suitability: 14 Yrs +

This event includes 20 min interval.


TV presenter, naturalist, conservationist, award-winning photographer and author Chris Packham's new show is designed for impact - challenging conventional ideas about where beauty is found, what good photography is, and what it is for.
Everyone is tempted by glamour, the big, the brash and the beautiful. But Chris champions the underdog - for him, humble everyday creatures are just as alluring.
At the core of all his work is conservation, so expect tales from the frontline and the hard-hitting truth about how we get it both wrong and right. Funny, inspiring, irreverent and packed with information it's not a lecture, it's a romp through the wild mind of Chris Packham.
Chris is recognised for his outstanding work in television broadcasting, particularly the BBC Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch series and his recent award-winning documentary, Chris Packham: Asperger's and Me. Chris's book Fingers in the Sparkle Jar was also voted the UK's favourite nature book in a 2018 poll carried out by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
