Simon King Live With Nature Watch

22nd April 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Known to millions as a face of Springwatch and Big Cat Diary, naturalist and broadcaster Simon King is the real life Dr. Doolittle. In this fully illustrated presentation, Simon takes you on a journey of discovery, showing you how you too can talk to the animals and get first class views of wildlife as a result. This talk is suitable for wildlife enthusiasts of all ages. Learn to grunt like a fallow deer, hoot like an owl and cuckoo like a… cuckoo amongst many others. Simon’s extensive practical knowledge of field-craft and wildlife watching techniques opens the door to the wild world, whether it be in your back yard or beyond. The presentation will includes an extensive Q&A session where you have the opportunity to chat with Simon about everything from the wildlife on your doorstep to his adventures as a wildlife film-maker all over the world. Discover stories of filming creatures as diverse as killer whales (for the land mark series Blue Planet) Great White Sharks (Planet Earth) and of course lions, leopards and cheetahs (Big Cat Diary). Join Simon after the event for a book signing.

2pm • Duration: TBC • Age: 11 + • £14 adults £12 child or concs.
