Tickets on sale now for Winter Wildlife Festival talks


People can have the chance to spend the evening with Mike Dilger or Stephen Moss during the Winter Wildlife Festival.

The well-known faces are lined up as evening speakers at the Festival at Slimbridge Wetland Centre, which runs from November 29 to December 5. 
Naturalist, writer and broadcaster Stephen’s talk is titled This Birding Life – (almost) half a century of birdwatching experiences at home and abroad.

His talk on Friday, December 3, will be based on readings from his best-selling collection of columns for The Guardian.

He will take us on a trip down memory lane as he looks back to a more innocent age of boyhood birding experiences around the London suburbs, Minsmere, Stodmarsh and Dungeness; before embarking on a whistle-stop tour around the globe, from St Kilda to the Masai Mara, and Trinidad and Tobago to Antarctica.

On Saturday December 4 the BBC’s One Show presenter Mike will deliver an entertaining talk on the Trials and Tribulations of being a wildlife presenter.

Although for many working in the field would be a dream come true, it is not without its challenges, which Mike will describe in this humorous talk. 

  • Both events start at 7.30pm.
  • Tickets cost £15, which includes a free drink.
  • Please call 01453 891223 to buy a ticket or email eleanor.wise@wwt.org.uk
