Cause UK Presents Wildlife Talks with Steve Backshall & Chris Packham
Steve Backshall – Voyages to Undiscovered Places: 19th October 2019, 3pm
Adventurer, presenter, explorer, wildlife enthusiast and all-round daredevil, Steve Backshall, stars at the Royal Hall, Harrogate.
Inspired by Steve’s current TV series, ‘Expedition’, his talk encompasses astonishing tales from a year of adventure; taking light into forgotten caves, making first ascents of Arctic peaks, and first descents of Himalayan rivers – he talks of narrow escapes and scrapes plus jaw dropping tales of close calls with near death as well as lessons learned from his extraordinary year.
Steve is one of the best loved wildlife presenters in the UK. Suitable for wildlife enthusiasts of all ages from 8 to 80, the event includes an extended Q&A session and book signing. Steve is due to return to our screens on Dave UKTV with Expedition – with Steve Backshall in July this year.
An Evening with Chris Packham: 19th October 2019, 7pm
Naturalist, TV presenter, writer, photographer, conservationist, campaigner and filmmaker, Chris Packham CBE, is heading to Harrogate.
In a special bespoke evening at the Royal Hall, Packham will talk about his photography and work with wildlife and conservation. He’ll also discuss his autobiography, Fingers in the Sparkle Jar. The memoir which was voted the UK’s ‘Favourite Nature Book’ inspired his TV documentary, Asperger’s and Me.
Packham was recently presented with a CBE from the Prince of Wales for his services to nature conservation.
The evening will also include a Q&A hosted by his Springwatch Unsprung presenter, Lindsey Chapman, followed by a book signing.
Yorkshire-born Lindsey is a Patron of The Wild Watch in Nidderdale AONB. Lindsey presents a number of wildlife and arts programmes including Big Blue UK, Costing the Earth and Springtime on the Farm, alongside working with Chris Packham.
